Scientist Notes

This exercise illustrates the effects of climate change on Pakistani agriculture and the manner in which local farmers are adapting to these effects. The slow-onset sea level rise that causes saltwater intrusion on arable land in Pakistan is a serious problem. We suggest this activity for use in the classroom after carefully going over the activity documents.
