How to secure gains made in agricultural production under a changing climate
While cereal production in India has increased significantly since the mid-1960s as a result of the Green Revolution, securing the gains achieved is becoming more difficult in the context of soaring food and fuel prices, volatile markets, depleting water resources, soil degradation, and the effects of global climate change. To discuss strategies for improving efficiency and resilience of farming systems as a way to ensure sustainable food security, over 400 participants gathered for an in-field stakeholder meeting on ‘Empowering Farmers for Climate Smart Agricultural Practices in Haryana’ in Taraori, Karnal, India, on 28 September 2012. The CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) South Asia program, and the International Maize and Wheat Improvement Center (CIMMYT) organized the event, among others.
