A separate Department for ‘Climate Change’ is set up as a major challenge to Humanity. Drip Irrigation has been introduced and inter linking of 21 rivers of the State for conservation of water. Over a 3 lac water harvesting structures are constructed in last 5 years which has increased the ground water level throughout the state and increased the agriculture income by four times. Social forestry in Gujarat has achieved a benchmark of 14 trees per hectare. The farmers are well informed about the climate conditions and awareness on Environmental issues.

A 3.5 km tunnel ‘Panam High Level Irrigation Canal’ is set to provide Irrigation Facilities to 18000 hectares land under cultivation of Shahera, Lunavada, and Santrampur villages will be a boon for the Panchmahal farmers. Under the Sujalam Sufalam scheme to make best use of water flowing in the sea, the Rs. 64 crore tunnel is first of its kind in the country as a Green Project in Global warming. The canal water would also feed water to 59 village ponds, and the canal water would also flow in to the 3 rivers also. The Sujalam Sufalam project provides irrigation facilities to the villages, which were not covered under the Narmada waters.

Three main sources of growth in Gujarat's agriculture are:
.Cotton output soared from 3.05 million bales (of 170 kg each) in 2002/03 to 11.2 million bales in 2007/08, primarily driven by Bt cotton since 2002
.The rapid growth of the high value segment, ie, livestock, fruits & vegetables.

While Gujarat's dairy success is well known, which is growing at 6-7% per annum on sustainable basis, the recent phenomenon of high growth comes from fruits and vegetables (dominated by banana, mango, potato and onions) that has grown at almost 12.8% during 2000/01 to 2007/08
.The third main source of growth comes from wheat—after a low of 0.6 million tonnes in 2000/01, production jumped to 3.8 million tonnes in 2007/08- an average annual growth rate of 28%!
