Abstract:
Climate change has adversely affected the two pillars-agriculture and food security, of the Indian economy. Great revolutions and policies have been implemented to boost primary sector, Green Revolution led agriculture to stabilize itself as self-sufficient thereby increasing its share of contribution to employment. Sustainable agriculture has ensured food security through various schemes like PDS to provide nutritious food to BPL families. However, climate change and unexpected natural calamities have affected agriculture, lowering the productivity and adversely affecting food security. The paper tries to show the correlation between the climate change and food security. This paper mainly discusses about the effect of climate change on agriculture sector, it also shows the dependency between PDS and food security. Since climate change has affected the country's topography in a major ratio but still there are people who live in such climate sensitive areas especially hilly areas and are totally dependent on them for their subsistence needs. Through this paper the researcher highlights the dependency of people on climate sensitive areas. Anthropogenic activities have created massive fluctuations in climate change. Crop failures due to climate change in many areas has hit the economy adversely and henceforth agricultural productivity has lowered down which is a serious matter of concern.
