Abstract: The major challenges being faced by Agriculture globally are degradation of natural resources and increasing frequency of climate change induced risks. In pre-green revolution period, the farmers practiced a more resilient agriculture that inherently adapted to climate variability through optimal use of biodiversity i.e. a careful selection of crop mix to suit the condition of water scarcity, drought and cold wave etc. But the present day intensive agriculture faces the daunting challenge of transforming itself for providing enough food in an ecologically sustainable manner in view of existing uncertainties about regional and local impacts of climate change. To overcome the situation, there is a need to engage diverse stakeholders in preparation of coherent policies that take advantage of rapid advances in Science and Technology and incentivize their adoption to stimulate a behavioral change and align them for action at different levels. The adaptation process will require validation and tailoring various strategies at regional to farm level due to variations in resource endowments viz soils, tools and technologies etc.
