climate change affect food security


 How does climate change affect food security?

Even small changes in atmospheric temperature can cause major disasters.It will also affect our food security.According to a study by the IPCC, if the temperature in India rises by 0.5 C during winters, the production of wheat per hectare will drop by more than 0.40 tonnes.


Floods, droughts, summers and heavy rains have adversely affected agricultural production.More than 50 per cent of India's land area is facing severe water scarcity.In Maharashtra's Jalna district, farmers' incomes fell by more than 50 per cent during the 2013 drought.Some farmers stopped cultivating.This poses a major challenge to food security.If the Earth's temperature rises above 2 degrees Celsius, one - third of the earth's flora and fauna will perish.Many species are thought to have perished in this way in the past.All of this is said to be due to human intervention.


Antarctica is one of the coldest regions in the world.

The snow-capped region receives very little sunlight.But here, too, the ice began to melt quickly.There were studies of ice sheets in Antarctica.These are icebergs that rise between layers of flowing ice.These too are under threat today.If the snow melts in such an icy area, it will threaten the very existence of humans and many other species.


A glacier is a layer of ice that moves slowly along the shore.In areas with high snowfall, the ice sheets stick together and form clots under high pressure.So when the clot becomes too big, it will slide.


This glacier supplies water to the rivers that originate from the Himalayas.Large icebergs are also moving along with it.The rapid formation of large ice caps in this way causes lightning to flood.Many glaciers are reported to have melted quickly.

Kulu Valley

Kullu in Himachal Pradesh is Apple's land.


This adjective is likely to go away due to climate change.It is getting hot in Himachal.But the best place for the growth of apples is in a cool area.Global warming is causing increasing hot.An apple worth over Rs 190 crore was destroyed in a storm in 2012.The loss was estimated at nearly 70 percent of the 2017 heavy rains.The last few years have been marked by miserable farming here.Now the farmers have left Kullu and started shifting their cultivation to the highlands of Lahal and Spiti.Cold areas suitable for apple cultivation began to decline as a result of global warming.

Mission 2050

Mission 2050 is to save 1000000 lives.Every year, more than 70 lakh people die due to air pollution.It is believed that reducing air pollution by 2050 could save more than a million lives.A report in the Paris Agreement set out this goal.


Disasters are just as catastrophic for humans as they are for climate change.The uncontrolled burning of fossil fuels causes gases to cause global warming and air pollution.The world is looking forward to Mission 2050.

Indian Climate

Climate in India Warnings of strong climate change began to come to India as well.Sea levels have risen in four major coastal cities in India.The four cities are Chennai, Kolkata, Mumbai and Surat.Global warming is said to be the main reason for this.The snow in the Himalayas began to melt.


Many of the northern states will face water shortages in the future.People in Dehradun in the 1980s did not use coolers and fans.It was very cold in those days.But today it is impossible to live there without a fan and cooler.The spring of Kashmir's Sont has disappeared.Lightning floods are now common in Missouri.Sikkim is struggling to survive heavy rains.The whole climate in Himachal has changed.Apple's production declined.Rajasthan receives rainfall in three to four months and now in one or two days.That heavy rain leads to a flash flood.Climate change has changed the taste of tea leaves in Darjeeling.Winter in Delhi was three months in the 1990s.But today it is only a few weeks.Andhra Pradesh has witnessed an increase in the number of storms in the last five years.Cherrapunji in Assam was the wettest place in the world.Today it has become a dry and hot region.Some parts of Maharashtra are experiencing flash floods and others droughts.
