Climate has played significant role in the economic development of India. India has tremendous reasons to be concerned about the impacts of climate change. Its large populous country depends on climate-sensitive sectors like agriculture and forestry for livelihoods. Agriculture is facing ecological and economical challenges. The major effects can be generalized as changes in the geographical limits to agriculture, changes in crop yields and impacts on agricultural system. Indian agriculture is particularly sensitive to climate change and variability. The purpose of this article is to understand the issue of impact and assesses the vulnerability of agriculture sector. A range of adaptation strategies make the opportunity to improve the agriculture management in the context of climate change for sustainable development towards the climate resilient pathways.
