Suboptimal Land Series – Part 6 (Final): Food security and climate change adaptation in dryland agriculture

Share this

Dryland farming is important as it provides a globally important ecosystem, a source of livelihood for 2 billion people, and is vulnerable to climate change. Many regions have been facing crop failure that leads to death due to longer drought; which will be repeated under the worsening climate change.

As a result, food insecurity will become more prevalent in the future. Improvement in cropping methods such as adopting water conservation techniques and drought-tolerant varieties would strengthen food security.
