Blurb/Shorttext:
Climate change is a burning problem of today.Studied showed that developing countries are more vulnerable to Climate Change and are expected to suffer from adverse Climatic impacts than developed countries.In a humid climate like that of Nepal,there will be changes in spatial and temporal distribution of temperatures and precipitation due to Climate Change. Agriculture is mostly affected by Climate Change.Decreased winter rainfall and prolonged drought leads to reduced production of Wheat.So there is a great need of Climate Change research.Study done in Nawalparasi District of Nepal showed that till date Climate Change have contributed positively to the yield of Wheat. Change in per unit percentage of temperature and Rainfall changed the yield by 1.7% and 0.29% respectively. Farmers have started to take adaptation strategies to be protected from the effect of Climate Change in coming days. Farmers in this District are shifting to other sources of income from the farming as it is seen to be less profitable.So this book will be useful for policy makers,researchers, and for small holder farmers suffering from Climate change.
