AN OVERVIEW OF FOOD SECURITY AND CLIMATE CHANGE IN INDIA

Hitesh Thakuria.

Abstract
Planning for the long-term impacts of climate change on Indian agriculture would, therefore, be rather low on
the government’s priority list. Climate change has added to the enormity of India's food-security challenges. While
the relationship between climate change and food security is complex, most studies focus on one dimension of food
security, i.e., food availability. According to the Indian Meteorological Department, the annual
mean temperature in the country has increased by 0.6 degrees Celsius between 1901 and 2018, when compared
to pre-industrial levels. Eleven of the 15 warmest years have so far all been within the last 15 years with 2018
being the sixth warmest year in India’s recorded history. This paper provides an overview of the impact of climate
change on India's food security, keeping in mind three dimensions — availability, access, and absorption.

Key words: Food insecurity, Poverty, Determinants, Indian Meteorological Department, Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR),
