We are happy to share an Q&A session with Aradhana Yaduvanshi, researcher with WOTR. Here, Dr. Aradhana Yaduvanshi talks about the opportunity to work with Prof. Mark New and Dr. Modathir Zaroug at the African Climate Development Initiative (ACDI).
We are happy to share a chapter written by Dr. Eshwer Kale and Dr. Marcella D'Souza published in a Springer Publication the 'Handbook of Climate Change Resilience' .
The chapter 'Building Resilience to Climate Change: Water Stewardship in Rainfed Agrarian Villages in Maharashtra, India' underlines the necessity to equip people with knowledge and tools to take informed decisions at the farm, enterprise, and community levels that enhance resilience and adaptive capacities. It is based on lessons learnt and observations from implementing a Water Stewardship Initiative (WSI) that seeks to facilitate a cognitive and organizational shift by bringing science, policy, and governance together at the level of practice and community action. This chapter presents the approach, key concepts, and a process applied in the WSI and highlights its potential to be taken forward in other similar regions. It has the potential to influence state policies in the water sector.
