Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

The effects of climatic variability and change on global agriculture have become an important societal and technological research field over last 30 years. In this Special Issue, we aim to bring to the forefront this research and various researchers, focusing on agricultural adaptation, a purposeful direct proactive or indirect reactive response to changes associated with climate, agricultural sustainability and influenced by many factors. A very important feature of approaches adapted in this field of research on adaptation in agriculture is the role of government agencies and their long-term policy adaptation in irrigation water management, drought management, and sustainable future funding in tackling adverse climatic conditions. In many parts of the world, farmers are expressing great concern over climatic change and lack of knowledge in future of unpredictable impacts on agriculture. Agricultural growers and farm management authorities handle a complex environment enriched with biophysical, climatic and societal human factors to make profitable agriculture. However, in recent times, political systems and governing authorities of various countries have shown a neutral and ignorant stance towards the importance of the impact of climate change in agriculture. This has been increasing the long-term vulnerability of agriculture and also diminishing the effect on future research funding and fundamental technological advancement in this particular field.

In this Special Issue, we aim to publish research articles on Climatic Variability, Adaptive Capacity, Agricultural System, Drought in Agriculture, Environment Crop Insurance, Advancement in Technology for Climate Adaptation, Data Science to tackle Climatic Variability. We also invite peers from the related fields of research to identify and contribute to this Special Issue with case studies and awareness stories about the adverse effect of climatic changes in agriculture and on the society.
