According to the UN World Food Programme (WFP), almost 10% of the world’s population faces food insecurity. In 2021, they further categorized 40 million people in the “emergency” phase of food insecurity. The SDG-2 goals for zero hunger are threatened primarily due to the challenges of higher temperatures and changing rainfall patterns. The increasing frequency of extreme weather events has only exacerbated the problem of food security. The agriculture sector employs almost two-thirds of those living in extreme poverty and they contribute to a major share of the world’s food production. Climate change is casting an ominous shadow on agricultural development. Increasing and securing yields and for contributing to food security are essential. The need is urgent to make agriculture resilient to climate change.
