BASIC Project, India Workshop


Semi arid regions l.jpg
Semi-arid regions ?

  • These climates are characterized by the fact that precipitation is less than potential evapotranspiration.

  • Characterized by relatively low annual rainfall of 25 to 60 centimeters and having scrubby vegetation with short, coarse grasses; not completely arid.

Basic Project, India Workshop


Why semi arid area was chosen l.jpg
Why semi-arid area was chosen ?

  • Climate extremes are an expected characteristic of semi-arid lands.

  • The people living in the semi-arid areas are particularly vulnerable to droughts, which trigger frequent subsistence crises --sharply increasing crop failures, dislocation, famine, poverty, increases stratification and the social inequities.

Basic Project, India Workshop


Peoples voices l.jpg
Peoples Voices

Increase in migration in our village is due to lack of rains, the agricultural labor are migrating to urban areas.

- Mr. Balaram Reddy, Karimnagar

People are shifting out of agriculture and taking up other means of livelihood activities due to lack of water. In this context food security has become another important issue

- Mr. Sheshagiri Rao, Bharat Krishak Samaj Mahabubnagar

Basic Project, India Workshop


Enhancing adaptive capacity l.jpg
Enhancing Adaptive capacity

1. The general ability of institutions, systems, and individuals to adjust to potential damage, to take advantage of opportunities, or to cope with the consequences.

2. Most populations know from local history the frequency and likely consequences of extreme climatic events. And most populations in highly variable or extreme climatic zones shape their livelihood systems to buffer against potential catastrophes.
