This book would certainly assume great significance in creating a database for realistic planning and implementation of future climate-smart agriculture approaches and would help in adding to existing store-house of knowledge concerning climate change and related issues. It would provide impetus to the approach moving from a relief-centric policy to an all-encompassing approach of prevention, mitigation, and preparedness for all climate change events. It would also guide readers in deriving insight in understanding many aspects relevant particularly to climate change impact and its resilience through mitigation and adaptation mechanisms.
