Towards Resilient Agriculture in a Changing Climate Scenario – Building Response Capacity of Small-Holder Producers

Author: , , ,       Publication Year:

Climate change is already happening and its effects, especially in 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 realise the National and State Action Plans on Climate Change (NAPCC and SAPCC).

For the last four 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 the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (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 catalysed insights, lessons, 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, Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services, Disaster Risk Reduction and Risk Prevention, Alternate Energy, Economics and Livelihoods, Health, Gender, and Governance.
