“What are we in for?” is an outcome of 8 studies conducted on different topics like agriculture, women in PRI, migration, wood needs of a village,  community perceptions of climate change, incidental learning among children etc. in the context of Climate Change Adaptation.

Many technical studies are being conducted across the country related to the scientific aspects of Climate Change and its impacts – eg. the impacts on the various crops, capturing the trends on warming, the changing rainfall patterns, and the impending food insecurity, water scarcity and so on. Simultaneously, “scientific” data is being provided to farmers so that they can obtain agro-advisories to avert negative impacts. Studies are being conducted to assess vulnerability at macro levels to help the governments plan for appropriate measures.  At the same time we are aware that the poor in the rural areas will be most affected. They hold the key to our survival. Our basics – food, water and clean air come from rural areas.

Hence, while planning for a project on Climate Change Adaptation (which we have initiated in 29 villages in 2 clusters), we began with the key question and went on to understand some aspects of this question: What is specific to Climate Change Adaptation that is different from just implementing watershed development / NRM?
