  2. 2. Climate Change • Change in volume, time and pattern of rainfall • Flash and Accidental floods • Increasing dry spells during monsoon • Hot winds during winters • Increasing water logging periods
  3. 3. Impact of Climate Change on Agriculture • Production and Livelihood • Food Insecurity • Decreasing bio-diversity • Increasing Migration • Fodder and Livestock, Pasture Land • Gender Issues

  11. 11. Other Efforts • Cost Benefit Analysis of Floods/ Drought • Policy Research on Climate Change and Adaptation • Disaster Risk Reduction Programme • Enhancing Livelihoods in Floods • Food Security and Climate Change • Documentation of indigenous knowledge in floods and Drought • Climate Change and Urban Resilience (ACCCRN)
  12. 12. Policy Implications  R & D for developing appropriate crop varieties  Synergy of technical know how and local wisdom  Space for more local innovations  Providing capacity support and opportunities of developing farmer trainers and farmer to farmer sharing and extension.  Involvement of women farmers in all the aspects of adaptive agriculture
