It is well known that due to impending climate change, there will drastic effects to agricultural productivity. In order to increase food production with demand from an ever increasing population, integration of multiple sources to combat climate change will be necessary. Those effected the most by these changes will be underdeveloped and developing countries. In the face of global climate change, India, the second most populous country, must utilize all resources whether genetic, technical, or agronomic to ensure adequate food and water production for the projected increase in population. Preparing for global climate change is possible through collective efforts on a national and global level and will help alleviate any problems we encounter in the future.
