Agriculture is the most important sector of economy in India. Provides food and livelihood security to much of the Indian population. It plays a crucial role in the country’s development contributing 14 per cent of India’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Climate is one of the key components influencing agricultural production and has large-scale impacts on food production and overall economy. Agriculture in India suffers a lot from erratic weather patterns such as heat stress, longer dry seasons and uncertain rainfall, since about 65 per cent of the cultivated area fully depends on monsoon rainfall. Climate change is one of the biggest environmental challenges in all Countries in the world. Climate change refers to any change in climate over time, whether due to natural variability or/and as a result of human activity. It has become a major concern to society because of its potentially adverse impacts worldwide. There are already increasing concerns globally regarding changes in climate that are threatening to transform the livelihoods of the vulnerable population segments.
