The impacts of climate change on global food system, nutrition and health will depend on a variety of environmental factors. Due to continuously increasing global temperature, the negative impact of climate change on agricultural crops includes reduction in crop quality and quantity. The increasing population demands more food which resulted intensive agricultural practices like the use of pesticides, livestock generation, extensive use of water resources. The high anthropogenic activities result, degradation of natural resources. Now, it is the need of the hour to strengthen our capacities to combat these constant environmental changes with integration of knowledge from, ancestors, communities and scientific innovations. Technological innovations to meet the local needs of food and nutrition with best practices for producing, preserving and preparing healthy foods.
