WOTR has implemented Pro-Soil project funded by GIZ in 7 villages of Bhalwani Cluster (Parner block) of Ahmednagar district. This area suffers from twin problems of low productivity and high instability in rain as a result of inadequate and unpredictable rainfall. The primary aim of the project is to promote sustainable and inclusive approaches for soil conservation, rehabilitation of degraded lands and improve soil health to enhance the crop productivity.
WOTR has implemented Pro-Soil project funded by GIZ in 5 villages of Pimpalner Cluster (Sakri block) of Dhule district. The primary aim of the project if to promote sustainable and inclusive approaches for soil conservation, rehabilitation of degraded lands and improve soil health to enhance the crop productivity. The aim was to do the impact assessment of organic and SCI methods of Paddy and Chickpea in Sakri block of Dhule district, Maharashtra. This study shows that how organic and SCI cultivation practices for paddy and chickpea increase the crop productivity.
WOTR has implemented the Pro-Soil project funded by GIZ in 8 villages of Bhokardan taluka of Jalna district in Maharashtra. The primary aim of the project is to promote sustainable and inclusive approaches for soil conservation, rehabilitation of degraded lands and improve soil health to enhance the crop productivity. In these 8 villages, a total of 6,989 ha of land were selected for this project. Based on the soil tests carried out, plot and crop specific recommendations on nutrient management through organic methods were given to the farmers.
"Groundwater, a renewable and finite natural resource, is a vital source of sustenance for humans and different ecosystems in the semi-arid regions.
The study examines long-term land use/land cover change (LUCC) at a finer scale in a semi-arid region of India. The objectives were to study and quantify the spatiotemporal LUCC and uncover the major drivers causing the change in the Mula Pravara river basin, which is located in a semi-arid region of Maharashtra state, India. From 1991 to 2016, the agricultural land area increased by approximately 98% due to the conversion of uncultivable and fallow lands to agriculture.
This is a case study of how a watershed development intervention has led to increased ownership and collective action to overcome development obstacles and climate change vulnerabilities.
Weather forecast based on local knowledge can be simple and timely. The report talks about how integration with science can strengthen these indigenous practices and support decision making even in the most remote locations.
This report focuses on sharing of water resources and irrigation facilities in groups as a strategy to conserve water and improve agricultural productivity. It also highlights the need for increasing water-use efficiency and including sustainable agricultural practices.
This study assesses how risks and responses to heat stress vary among the different social groups in the rural communities in the semi-arid region of Maharashtra. It identifies the vulnerable groups as well as the important factors that affect their vulnerability to heat stress.
The five-year ASSAR project (Adaptation at Scale in Semi-Arid Regions, 2014-2018) uses insights from multi-scale, interdisciplinary work to inform and transform climate adaptation policy and practice in ways that promote the long-term wellbeing of the most vulnerable and those with the least agency.
