Since the lockdown was implemented on March 24, 2020, WOTR has been working at the frontlines, across seven states in India, being a source of support for the rural communities, especially farmers in these difficult times. We present to you a snapshot of our work — the relief measures we are undertaking on the ground to arrest the losses incurred by the COVID-19 pandemic.
We are delighted to present to you a discussion between our Senior Researcher Arjuna Srindhi and Elvira Greiner of Andheri Hilfe-Bonn, in the German magazine, Sudesian. The discussion focuses on the challenges posed by climate change, the issue of farmer suicides in India and how agriculture can be made more resilient to climate change. This interview was held in the context of the Talanoa Dialogue at COP 23 that was held in Bonn, Germany in November 2017.
