HIMALAYAN AGRICULTURE KNOWLEDGE NETWORK
TASK FORCE 6 HIMALAYAN AGRICULTURE
Sustainable agriculture for food, nutritional and ecological security and for ameliorating climate change impacts in the Indian Himalayan Region
Agriculture is the mainstay of people in the Indian Himalayan Region. However, with climate variability and the growing  
capriciousness in precipitation and rising temperatures, the traditional farming systems and cropping patterns are  
increasingly under threat. The resource-poor rural farming communities are most vulnerable to the risks of climate change  
due to poor adaptation capacity. Furthermore, the physiographic and environmental constraints associated with the wide  
variability in altitude, slope, and aspect limit the adoption of modern agricultural technologies in the IHR. This calls for urgent  
extensive investigation on the hill agriculture to develop resilience in this vulnerable sector. The focal geographical areas of  
this taskforce are eastern (NEH region), central (Uttarakhand) and western Himalayas (Leh, Ladakh, HP, and J&K).
