A changing climate and in particular rising global temperatures are the greatest environmental threats in modern times. Rising temperatures are affecting human settlements and economies and bringing significant changes in crop yields that are in turn affecting low-income rural populations that depend on traditional agriculture. The changing climate has seriously affected food production globally. Pakistan is prone to such changes and has been listed amongst those countries where climatic influences are inevitable. I am interested to focus on such relations in the Sindh province, which is the second largest political unit of Pakistan in terms of agricultural production. About 70% of natives in this province rely heavily on agriculture. Alteration in climate have caused generally negative trends in agricultural production and cropping patterns in Sindh. The Indus River which is the life line for agriculture shows variable flows in the recent past. The uncertain and irregular supply of irrigated water and prolonged drought has compelled farmers to shift to over cropping.
