 This paper examines the current food crises, the projected effect of climate change, the vulnerabilities created by regional concentrations of food production, imports and exports, and the significant role of women as food producers, consumers and family food managers. Bridging productivity differentials between male and female farmers, by helping women overcome production constraints, would significantly increase agricultural output. This becomes an imperative, given the feminization of agriculture. Institutionally, a group approach to farming would help women and other smallholders enhance their access to land and inputs, benefit from economies of scale, and increase their bargaining power economically and socially. The proposed study deals with the Climate factors, challenges of global warming, GHG Emissions in India, effect of Global warming in our Agriculture, Agriculture and Food production, Change in rainfall amount and patterns, efforts to mitigate climate change in the agriculture sector, conclusion respectively.
