# A SEMINAR ON "IMPACT OF CLIMATE CHANGE ON AGRICULTURE AND ALLIED FIELDS OF NE REGION"
was organised by the Biological Sciences Department of AIMT on the 13th of November, 2015.
Climate change has brought about possibly permanent alterations to our planet’s geological, biological and ecological systems. Flooding, drought, intense summer heat, violent storms and other extreme weather events which could also result from the increased energy stored in our warming atmosphere affect water resources around the world. Water is intimately tied to other resource and social issues such as food supply, health, industry, transportation and ecosystem integrity. This seminar will focus on impact of climate change on agriculture and allied fields observed across Northeastern India's diverse geographic regions. This is also a platform to provide NABARD with a blueprint for actions to be taken for coping with climate change vis a vis agriculture and related fields in the Northeastern India.
Topics to be discussed:
I. Vulnerability of Northeast agriculture towards climate change
II. Vulnerability of Northeast sericulture and tea towards climate change
III. Adaptation and mitigation options for climate change such as water resource management, agroforestry, bio waste recycling, pest and GHG management.
