Energy, Development and Climate Change: Striking a Balance

Author: ,       Publication Year:

Climate change is already happening and its effects, especially on rural communities in India, are particularly adverse. The need is to highlight the key issues and understand the practical challenges that must be addressed if India is to build the capacities of rural communities to robustly adapt to climate change and realize the National and State Action Plans on Climate Change (NAPCC and SAPCC).

Since the last 4 years, WOTR has been implementing a large scale integrated project on climate change adaptation in rural Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh in collaboration with NABARD, the Swiss Development Cooperation (SDC), the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD), the Central Research Institute for Dryland Agriculture (CRIDA), the World Agro-Forestry Council (ICRAF) and the State Agricultural University (MPKV).

This experience has catalyzed insights, learnings and experiences from multiple stakeholders which we have formulated as Position Papers across 12 thematic areas: Watershed Development, Water , Food and Nutrition Security, Agriculture, Livestock, Bio Diversity and Eco System Services, Disaster Risk Reduction and Risk Prevention, Alternate Energy, Economics and Livelihoods, Health , Gender and Governance.
