What are we in for? – Rural dynamics in the context of Climate Change a look at Ahmednagar district
This is a book comprising 8 studies on different subjects – agriculture, gender, migration, peak oil, health – in the context of climate change. This set of studies emerged as an attempt to understand the rural communities of Ahmednagar district, as WOTR initiates the project on Climate Change Adaptation. The findings of these studies throw new meaning when looked at in the light of climate change (adaptation and mitigation) and looked at together with their interlinkages, the unintended effects (positive and negative) and also our maladaptative quick-fixes. The studies bring to fore the current context and its impacts.
