Description

The Climate Change Adaptation project is being implemented by WOTR in 65 villages of Maharashtra, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh covering an area of 40,734 ha (407 sq.kms), directly benefitting 63,282 people from over 11,979 households.

WOTR is introducing new elements such as agro-meteorology for tracking weather patterns at the village level leading to generation of advisories to farmers on what steps to take in emergency conditions. This is also linked to water budgeting, crop planning, adaptarive nd sustainable agronomic practices and irrigation management. 

The intervention seeks to develop the knowledge, strategies, approaches, measures and processes that enable vulnerable communities to cope with and adapt to the impending impacts of Climate Change in a manner which can be widely adoptable, replicable and scalable.

The objective is to improve the adaptive capacities of rural communities to respond to the effects of emerging climate changes by regenerating the eco-systems they live in, diversifying livelihood sources in order to reduce risks, and adopting new agricultural and renewable energy technologies.

This video is an overview showcasing of the different components of WOTR´s Climate Change Adaptation Project.
