Climate Adaptation and Resilience
Defining Adaptation and Resilience, with Implications for Policy
Increase in average global temperature of the planet Earth has led to rise in climate extremes such as floods, storms, drought and slow onset events like rising seas, melting glaciers and oceans turning acidic, climate change is here to stay. Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warns that the window of opportunity for climate resilient development is narrowing. We must scale up efforts to reduce risks and adopt adaptation practices at scale such as building dykes, retrofitting infrastructure, promoting regenerative/ organic food production and water conservation.
We work with organizations such as SEEDS India, Access Agriculture, Asian Productivity Organization and Climate Action Network South Asia (CANSA) to promote such practices.
Through our Farmer Field School in Etawah we are promoting sustainable agriculture practices in the water stressed regions of India.
