Impact of Climate Change on Agricultural Production and Food Security in Rural India: An Economic Analysisread more Climate change, agriculture productivity and food security is current issue in the whole world. It is very serious concern that in present time nearly 1.2 billion populations are undernourished in the world, while millions suffer from chronic disease due to excess food consumption. On the other hand, 600 million children die due to chronic hunger every year and 17000 die every day in the world. In Indian perspectives around 325 million are malnourished. Climate change and its impact on agriculture and food security is an emerging issue for India because more than 52% population of India depends on climate-sensitive sectors like agriculture, forestry and fishery for their livelihood. This study will investigate the impact of climate change on agriculture and food security with specialization of Uttar Pradesh and Haryana (A comparative analysis). This will try to how we can control the adverse effect of climate change on agriculture production in India and we provide the enough food for Indian population. This will be devoted to Indian policy makers and agriculturist to adopt a plan for the future developmental programme.
