CCAFS-in the South Asian Region

South Asia is a hotspot of climate vulnerability due to its large and growing population, widespread poverty, low rural social capital, depleting natural resources, and climatic variability. By the end of this century, South Asia alone is projected to face a 4-10% reduction in net cereal production due to global climate change. Recent Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Special Report on climate change and land, highlights that the region has not even attained 40% of its potential crop production, offering enough scope to employ adaptation and mitigation measures while increasing food production.
