Abstract

In the face of escalating climate challenges, the global agricultural sector stands at a crucial crossroads. The concept of Climate Resilient Agriculture (CRA) has emerged as a beacon of hope, promising a sustainable path forward. CRA refers to farming practices designed to anticipate, absorb, and recover from climate-related shocks. It includes sustainable land and water management, crop diversification, and stress-tolerant crop varieties. These methods aim to increase the resilience of agricultural systems against climatic uncertainties. CRA has gained significant attention in contemporary research due to the increasing challenges posed by climate change.
