Abstract

There is global consensus that climate is changing mainly due to the anthropogenic emissions of green house gases (IPCC, 2007b). Also, there is a widespread concern over long-term climate changes and changes in climate variability through occurrence of extreme weather events such as cyclones, floods, droughts, sea level rise etc. Agriculture is exposed, directly and affected considerably by climate and its changes. Due to the spatially different impacts of climate change, there is a need to understand its context in each region with respect to exposure, expected impacts, vulnerability status and the response strategies to mitigate, core and adapt better with the process of climate change................
