climate change, global warming, greenhouse gas, agricultural production, food safety


Global warming and climate change problems are experienced because of the mixing of greenhouse gases which are formed as a result of human-induced activities such as the use of fossil fuels and deforestation, into the atmosphere. The sector where the adverse effects of climate change are most evident is the agricultural sector. Due to climate change, it causes various problems such as irregular rainfall, drought, water scarcity, soil degradation, and increase in diseases and pests in the agricultural sector. These problems cause low yield and low quality in agricultural production. While the need for food increases in a trend where there is a continuous increase in the world population and the decrease in agricultural areas, various studies and agreements have been made on the subject by scientists, national and international organizations on the seriousness of the negativities experienced due to climate change. In this study, studies to reduce the negative effects of climate change on agricultural production were explained.
