The present study entitled “Awareness about effects of climate change on water resources and its solution” was conducted in Punjab. A sample of 40 respondents was interviewed. The results indicated that majority of the respondents were small farmers (1–2 ha), young, matriculates, belonged to general category, had family size of 5–7 members. Majority of the respondents were aware that increase in temperature (82.5 percent), shifting of season (72.5percent) and variation in rainfall (70 percent) were the changes in climate. The study further analyzed that most of the respondents were aware about the effects of increase in temperature, heavy rainfall and little rainfall on water resources. Therefore they suggested area under paddy should be reduced (70 percent) and crop diversification (52.5 percent) should be adopted to save water. The paper further discusses the recommended water saving technologies at farm level.
