In recent years, the changing climate and its impact on human lives has been a hot issue of debate worldwide. Whatever the temporal and spatial impacts of climate change on earth, there has been a consensus that poor countries will suffer more than developed countries. It is also assumed that the agricultural production of poor countries, which depend on traditional agricultural practices, will have more food shortages due to the impact of climate change. The development activities of developed countries can be seen to be responsible for the current rate of global warming and it is believed that a significant reduction in the amount of green house gases may help to reduce the impact in the future. The aim of this article is to discuss the impact of climate change on agriculture worldwide, especially in poor countries. This article has also tried to suggest some adaptive measures to reduce the loss in Nepalese agriculture.
