1995), while on the other hand the effect of increased temperature would largely be negative because of increased respiration and shortened vegetative and grain-filling periods. The net effect of an increase in atmospheric CO2 concentration and tem- perature is complicated and depends on the relative effects of both variables in a given region. The question, therefore, is whether climate change will reduce yields and pose a risk to cereal production. The sustainability of agricultural production and food security in this region of poor soil fertility depends greatly on the climatic conditions, so any negative change will have serious consequences.

In recent years, climate change has emerged as the most prominent of the global environmental issues. Given the fundamental role of agriculture in human welfare, concern has been expressed regarding the potential effects of climate change on agricultural productivity. This chapter analyses climate change and climatic variability scenarios for South Asia, assesses the vulnerability of the rice–wheat system to climate change and suggests adaptation strategies to climate change for the system, with a focus on the IGP.
