Effect of Climate Variability and Change on Agriculture in India

Publisher: Tata Cornell Institute

The challenges India faces in tackling malnutrition are complicated further by the vulnerability of its agriculture to climate variability and change. By improving our understanding of how the climate affects agriculture, we can better address maternal and child nutrition in India. This research seeks to shed light on these climate–agriculture–nutrition pathways. It shows that, while the climate does not affect agriculture in some of the ways we assume it does, we are not paying enough attention to other ways in which climate change can negatively affect agriculture.
