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).
In 1996, Darewadi, a remote, drought prone village in the reain shadow region of Maharashtra was a picture of despair. Villagers had to migrate to resource-endowed areas working seasonally at sugarcane cutting or in brick kiln of contractors. At this point, some of the villagers approached WOTR to undertake watershed development activities in their village.
