Abstract

As agriculture is likely to suffer the biggest impacts, needs sound adaptation processes to sustain agricultural production and food system as a whole. Also need to stress the ability of decision-makers to manage information as an important factor determining the chance for a community to adapt to climate change. Awareness-raising and training are highly valued and lead to empowerment. Any knowledge transfer should take into account farmers’ point of view, with the aim of building on their knowledge and capitalize it: climate change is a global problem with local impacts, thus information technology, jointly with communication sciences, can play a big role in blending different perspectives. In developing countries especially In India there is no dearth of “women entrepreneurs” who are capable of making their mark at the global level. The national policies and strategies have not yet considered this unexplored potential pool of intellectual inputs.
