This study is primarily aimed at reviewing the impacts of climate change on Indian agricultural sustainability and poverty where poverty and agriculture are both salient, and that climate change is likely to reduce agricultural yields significantly, and that this damage could be severe unless adaptation to higher temperatures is rapid and complete. The study also summarizes the existing literature on the causes and characteristics of expected climate changes in India over the coming years, especially in the agricultural sector, and discusses the ways in which these changes might affect the lives of the poor. The study also throws light on the nexus between agricultural productivity and poverty eradication.
