Food security is threatened in parts of Orissa (Odisha) where climate change has been a phenomenon. Rise in temperature and sea level has made agriculture vulnerable as seawater is more often gushing into the land filling their paddy fields with saline water. Because agriculture is almost regularly hit by tidal waves and floods, food security of these people has been threatened as they have no other option to earn a livelihood and feed the family.
