There is an urgent need to create mechanisms to empower widows in Yavatmal and Vidarbha, and give them the support they need to pick up the pieces of their lives and move forward. However, such initiatives are rare. One of the few such projects for the welfare of the helpless women is run by Watershed Organisation Trust (WOTR) and its sister organization Sampada Trust.
We are delighted to share that WOTR's International Consultation gets covered in the Sakal Times. At the consultation on 'Adapting Agriculture in Semi-arid India to a Global Temperature Rise of 1.5 °C', experts and stakeholders from different fields came together to discuss the gravity of weather variability and climate change in India and find solutions, particularly for semi-arid regions in India that are heavily dependent on monsoons.
