Climate change has become an issue of great concern in recent years due to its effect on every aspect of life. The ecosystem, agriculture, industry, households and human well-being are all intertwined with climate change issues. The food supply system worldwide has been affected and is also contributing to climate change due to emission of greenhouse gases that results in global warming with its attendant consequences such as floods, drought, forest fires, poverty, malnutrition, health and various socioeconomic problems. Agriculture and food processing, preservation, storage and distribution activities are seriously affected leading to adverse effect on the food supply chain. Holistic global, regional and national policies are required to cope with effects of global warming in such a way as to build people’s resilience and that of food supply.
