Drought in Jalna – Community-based Adaptation to Extreme Climate Events in MaharashtraForfatter(e):
This booklet is based on outcomes from a two-year Indo-Norwegian research and capacity development project titled, ‘Extreme Risks, Vulnerabilities and Community-Based Adaptation in India (EVA)’. The findings draw upon empirical data from rural communities in Jalna District in the dryland region of Marathwada of Maharashtra.
The booklet provides assessments of impacts and vulnerabilities to extreme risks of agriculture and water resources and insights into how rural communities have been able to withstand and respond to the recent drought and changes in monsoon patterns. It explains how the government and non-governmental agencies at state and district levels have responded and enabled or constrained community-level initiatives.
