Climate Change and Indian Agriculture


Over 60 percent of India’s population depend on the agricultural sector which constitutes about 14.3 per cent of India’s gross domestic product, 2010-11, as per the Central Statistics Office, New Delhi.

The implications of climate change is yet not very clear, although scholars agree that global climate change will lead to greater unpredictability of weather conditions at local levels.
