This can effect crop production which is essential due to the growing population of the world. Over population often puts pressure on a country to produce more. This leads to poor farming practices, overgrazing and monoculture. The constant land degradation and low rainfall causes desertification in arid and semi-arid areas. The desertification results in unproductive farmland which increases the pressure to produce food even more.
The crops can be affected by many different ways leading to a shortage of food. This can range from drought to poor farmers or weak agricultural country. The reasons for poor farmers are bad governance, terrible policies and mass corruption in the government . The poor farmers, who cannot afford a tractor, rent it which can cost them more money than buying a new one . There are however many farmers who still use old methods greatly reducing their crop output just because they find new machinery strange and unreliable.
Higher temperatures will affect the growth of plants and Efficiency of the crops and forest in that area. Here is how climate change will effect the U.S. tropical islands. Sea level rise will threaten the amount freshwater, ecosystems, and infrastructure of U.S. tropical islands. Coral reefs, That are already being hurt by pollution, will probably get worse as the ocean gets warmer and absorbs more acid. Here is how climate change will effect the North East.

The impact would be notably severe in tropical areas thatchiefly consist of developing countries like Pakistan. In Pakistan, Climate change raises issues with its tremendous social, environmental and economic impacts. Pakistan is often exposed to natural hazards like floods, cyclones and droughts. These hazards once combined with the vulnerabilities in the form of poorness, exclusion and inappropriate political choices and actions, make individuals liable to the impacts of hazards. The agricultural sector is most prone to Climate change and changes in cropping and productivity, as results of
The majority of poor are unable to get food in terms of net food availability. The major cause of the food deficit is occurred due to an influence of climate that destroys the agriculture crops production by natural calamities such as floods and droughts (Arif, & Khalid, 2007). Furthermore, changing temperature and weather patterns cause of the emergence of new pests and diseases that affect animals, trees, and crops. This has direct effects on the quality and quantity of food production as well as the availability and prices of food. Extreme weather events have negative impacts on livelihood assets in both rural and urban areas and threaten of food security (Mallikarjuna, 2013).
temperature will be increased up to 3 Celsius by 2040 and 5-6 Celsius at the end of this century (Siddiqui et al., 2012). Due to a higher temperature, Asia region can lose over 50 percent of its wheat production (Siddiqui et al., 2012). Furthermore, the agricultural sector of Pakistan is more vulnerable from climate change due to geographical area (Siddiqui et al., 2012). Generally, Pakistani economy depends on agriculture sector but unfortunately, this sector is facing very serious problems such as shortage of irrigation water and less rainfall due to unpredicted climate change (MENHAS, Umer, & Shabbir, 2016). Pakistan is ranked 12th on the list of those countries which are most vulnerable to the impacts of climate change (Piracha, & Majeed,
Pakistan is used to suffering from multiple crises at a time, news headlines are usually dominated by issues like terrorism, injustice, extremism, political unrest and power shortages etcetera. But the dangerous threat we all know as climate change has been virtually left off the radar when it comes to issues of national priority. Environmental issues have always found little space in Pakistan, mainly due to mass unawareness within the political culture of the country. Studies from the Pakistan Metrological Department shows dramatic changes in Pakistan’s climate, such as; 10 to 15% decrease in rainfall in the coastal belts and hyper arid plains, 18-32% increase in rainfall in the monsoons zone, especially in the sub-humid and humid areas 0.5 to 0.7% increase in solar radiation over southern half of the country, 3 to 5% decrease in cloud cover in Central Pakistan, with increase in sunshine hours 17 to 64% departure of rainfall from normal during EL Nino events, increase in frequency of extreme events such as heavy rains, storms, heat waves, cold waves, cyclone and flash floods, significant shift in weather patterns/monsoon, change in availability of irrigation water, less snowfall
Climate change has become one of the leading factors that has damaged rural communities in the developing world. Rural areas in the developing world are mostly affected by climate change due to lack of education and funds to implement measures that can curb climate change. Climate change has damaged rural communities by affecting the livelihood of the rural people, health, agriculture, the economy just to mention a few. Natural disasters, sea level rises and global warming are some of the climatic conditions which have damaged rural communities in the developing world. 2.NATURAL DISASTERS AND SEA LEVEL RISE AND HOW THEY HAVE DAMAGED RURAL COMMUNITIES IN THE DEVELOPING WORLD 2.1.
