A United Nations report has estimated that the climatic changes together can cause a fall in food production by 25%, resulting in more hunger, increased price of food and increasing possibilities of war over food. With a current rate of 10 ha minute-1 soil degradation and 23 ha minute-1 deforestation at global level as stated in UNCCD Secretariat Recommendations for Policymakers published in April, 2012,…..
