Climate Change and Farming- then and now

Isn’t it interested that farming was what, perhaps, saved people living in the middle east roughly 13,000 years ago when the climate became more dry due to climate change? They adapted to their surroundings and came up with innovative solutions such as cultivating land, sowing and saving seeds, and storing the harvest in granaries. Eventually, this became a society and is what we call the Fertile Crescent which is noted as one of the most successful agricultural regions of its time. If adaptation was so crucial and significant during that era of climate change, I wonder what kind of land management and culture innovations we will come up with to adapt to this era of climate change?
