The impacts of climate change are global concerns, but in India, where large parts of the population are chronically vulnerable to natural hazards, climate change impacts are particularly critical. Agriculture (largest sector of Indian economy), accounts for some 17.2% of the GDP and 52% of labor force, is already under pressure and impacts of climate variability cause an additional risk. Livelihood diversification is one means of adapting to climate change. It is being realized through development of a robust low cost input technology that gives maximum returns within a short gestation period. In the present study, current and future distribution model of Simarouba glauca is developed. The results indicate that many Indian states and districts are suitable for its introduction/cultivation and hold a great potential under climate change projections. The species cultivation is an example of a low input cost technology that would give assured returns and focus on rural livelihood improvement.
