Abstract

The most negative effect of global warming is climate change that leads to water scarcity. Rising global temperature intensifies hydrological cycle resulting heightened risks of more extreme erratic rainfalls and frequent drought and floods On the other hand, unsustainable uses of natural resources increase worldwide degradation of extensive tracts of lands. Therefore, the impacts of global warming are the increasing risks of life and health, especially for people in developing countries. It is predicted that billion of people, particularly in the developing countries would faces shortages of water and foods in the next decades, as a result of the increasing pressure of lands and water resources to produce sustainable food security. Thus global action is needed to enable the developing countries to adapt and mitigate those climate changes. Agriculture has significance roles in food security and climate changes, since agriculture is one of an important source of greenhouse gas emissions. Whilst the developing countries contribute most of those emissions. On the other hand, most of the technical mitigation of agriculture could be realized in developing countries. Thus agricultural systems could contribute significantly to overall mitigation, that hopefully could reduce the extent of require d adaptation and catastrophic in developing countries. Agricultural system would need to adapt unavordable climate changes and its impacts, in order to ensure the food security. Improving agricultural water management is one of the important ways for adapting agricultural production to combat the global warming and climate changes. Nuclear -Isotopic Technologies have been developed well and used intensively for ecological and agricultural purposes. This paper would review the potential role of Nuclear-Isotop ic technologies in exploring potential synergism between food security, adaptation, and mitigation to produce an agricultural system that is more resilient to climate variability. Keywords : Nuclear -isotopic technologies, climate change, adaptation and mitigation to produce an agricultural system that is more resilient to climate variability
