Background of the initiative

Integration of Climate Change Concerns in Ongoing Programs



Impact of land treatment
Impact of Land Treatment

Impact of Land Treatment-Stylo Grass on Form Bund

Impact of Land Treatment-Form pond

Impact of Land Treatment-CCT

Impact of Land Treatment-Sunken pond


In-situ conservation practices

Conservation furrow

-retains about 37% additional soil moisture compared to farmers’ practice

-better plant growth and higher yields by about 17%

Castor + Pigeonpea

Groundnut


Model Compost preparation

Low dung to biomass ratio for more nutrition


WAT

Water pumping out of the bore well

Farm pond with full of water

RECHARGE WELL





Restoration of tanks requires massive earthwork which creates great potential for wage employment

Approach and methodology for community-based adaptation creates great potential for wage employment

  • Adaptation is an action that people/households /individuals taken in response to stress, including that due to climate change.

  • Autonomous adaptations by communities by putting systematic mechanisms in place (e.g., communication, credit, finance, social network, alternative services livelihoods, etc.)

  • Improve the capacity to by making available information

  • Providing Affordable and appropriate technology

  • Improving access to meteorological information (e.g., reliable weather forecast specifically targeted to farming practices.)

  • Capacity building of communities with respect to the crop, cattle and health insurance

  • The information and awareness

  • Institution building and creation of support systems

  • Document communities’ coping mechanisms and adaptations and disseminate them on a large scale.


Key impacts creates great potential for wage employment


Monitoring and evaluation of progress and impacts creates great potential for wage employment

M&E system

  • Baseline data on different variables and parameters to compare impacts with the pre-project situation

  • Collected seasonal data for monitoring crop productivity, ground water table, etc.

  • Community based planning and monitoring for each season

  • Outcome monitoring: Documentation of case studies, Thematic studies

  • Annual reviews


Lessons learnt on making community-based adaptation work creates great potential for wage employment

  • Interventions have enhanced resilience of local communities through building up livelihood assets

  • Increased natural resource base (water, irrigated crop & pasture land) leading to higher income and better food security

  • Building response capacity: Investment in human capital resulted in enhanced capacity of community for NRM mgt.

  • Need to explicitly identify and build in measures focusing on ability to manage climate risks (and where applicable: confronting impacts of CC)


  • Localised information on the manifestations of climate change is needed:

    • Timely access to weather information

    • Option sets

    • Access to knowledge and information

  • Creation/strengthening of local institutions to improve planning and management skills leads to continuity, ability to leverage external resources and creation of knowledge

  • Strong local institutions that continue beyond project periods are seen as a main driver for managing climate risks
