According to a recent study conducted by ActionAid and Centre for Sustainable Agriculture "around 80 percent of small and marginal farmers who contribute about 50 percent of the total crop production will be the most affected by the changing climate," reports Sify.com

"The small and marginal farmers who are the largest food producers of our country can only sustain their production system if the policies and practices on climate resilient sustainable agriculture is widely adopted," said Amar Jyoti Nayak of ActionAid India.
