Author(s): D. NONGMAITHEM, M. APON, A.P. SINGH AND L. TZUDIR
The most exposed sector influenced by climate change is agriculture because of its reliance on climatic parameters like soil health, temperature, rainfall, etc. In developing countries, agriculture must undergo a significant transformation such that it can overcome the related challenges of achieving food security and responding to climate change. In most of the estimations, it has indicated that climate change is likely to decrease agricultural productivity, production and incomes in some areas that already have high food insecurity levels. It is the need of the hour for agriculture to become ‘climate smart’ so as to alleviate these challenges posed by climate change. Climate smart agriculture means sustainably increase agricultural productivity, production and income, adapt and build resilience to climate change and reduce greenhouse gases emissions in every possible way. Therefore, to achieve climate change goals and food security, there is a significant need to develop climate smart agriculture.
