Climate change in South Asia
It has one of the highest densities of population and economic activities in the world, with a large number of poor people who rely on natural resources for their survival and livelihoods, with high dependence on rainfall. HSBC Report on vulnerability to the physical impacts of climate change puts India on the top of the climate related risks among 67 nations that it surveyed. Based on the IPCC report, it is estimated if trends in climate change and land holdings in India continue at the current pace, some million people, or roughly half the population in India may directly or indirectly be impacted due to climate change conditions. This year, India has seen distributed rains with a large part of the country either under floods or under drought, impacting agriculture activities of more than million people with direct impact on their livelihood and sustenance. Extreme weather events are costing India USD billion annually and climate change is projected to impact agricultural productivity with increasing severity from to the end of the century.
The scientists used the best available evidence and supplemented it with advanced computer simulations to arrive at likely impacts on agriculture, water resources, cities and coastal ecosystems in South Asia, South East Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa. Some of their findings for India include:. India is already experiencing a warming climate. Unusual and unprecedented spells of hot weather are expected to occur far more frequently and cover much larger areas. A decline in monsoon rainfall since the s has already been observed. The frequency of heavy rainfall events has also increased.
Impact of Climate Change on Indian Agriculture: A Review
During the recent decade, with the growing recognition of the possibility of climate change and clear evidence of observed changes in climate during 20 th century, an increasing emphasis on food security and its regional impacts has come to forefront of the scientific community. In recent times, the crop simulation models have been used extensively to study the impact of climate change on agricultural production and food security. The output provided by the simulation models can be used to make appropriate crop management decisions and to provide farmers and others with alternative options for their farming system. It is expected that in the coming decades with the increased use of computers, the use of simulation models by farmers and professionals as well as policy and decision makers will increase. In India, substantial work has been done in last decade aimed at understanding the nature and magnitude of change in yield of different crops due to projected climate change. This paper presents an overview of the state of the knowledge of possible effect of the climate variability and change on food grain production in India.
India: Climate Change Impacts
Feeling the Heat pp Cite as. India is a crucial player in international climate negotiations by virtue of four main factors: its large population; its rapid economic growth; its political role as a leader amongst nations of the global South; and its position on the frontline of climate change impacts.

Climate change in South Asia is having significant impacts already which are expected to intensify as global temperatures rise due to climate change. In the edition of Germanwatch 's Climate Risk Index , two countries in South Asia — Bangladesh and Pakistan — ranked sixth and seventh respectively as the countries most affected by climate change in the period from to , while another — India — ranked fourth among the list of countries most affected by climate change in Ongoing sea level rise has already submerged several low-lying islands in the Sundarbans region, displacing thousands of people. Among the countries of South Asia , Bangladesh is likely to be the worst affected by climate change. This is owing to a combination of geographical factors, such as its flat, low-lying, and delta-exposed topography ,  and socio-economic factors, including its high population density , levels of poverty , and dependence on agriculture.
Шестьдесят четыре, - сказала она равнодушно. - Ну и. Дэвид приблизился поближе к камере. Теперь его лицо занимало экран целиком.
- Вот откуда шрам. - Весьма сомнительно, чтобы Танкадо связал свои ощущения с выстрелом. - И все же он отдал кольцо, - сказал Фонтейн. - Вы правы, сэр.
Ему захотелось увидеть ее глаза, он надеялся найти в них избавление. Но в них была только смерть.
