Abstract This chapter describes the components (elevated CO2, temperature and drought) of climate change and their direct and indirect effects on plant-insect interactions. The genetic resources (such as wild relatives and traditional, locally adapted landraces) important for increasing pest/disease resistance in crop plants are described. Some strategies for introduction of pest and disease resistance are presented, which include traditional and biotechnological (genetic modification) approaches.
