The Asian Monsoon impacts agriculture which feeds two thirds of humanity
The Asian monsoon is one of the dominant climatic features of planet Earth and largely controls the environmental conditions of the most populous continent in the world.
In the past,changes in the Monsoon have led to floods and famines. What will happen in the future? Scientists predict that as global warming alters the climate the monsoon will become stronger with increased rainfall. It will also become more variable with both heavier rainfall and also times when the rains fail. There will also be changes in patterns of where the rain falls. This will both threaten infrastructure and have an impact on food production.
