A large human population, continuing high rate of population growth, and poverty characterize South Asia. The region has shown tremendous progress in last four decades in food production and availability, yet 1/4th of the world’s hungry and 40% of the world’s malnourished children and women live here. The region is prone to climatic risks such as floods, droughts, cyclones, heat waves; and these are projected to increase in future.
