Millions of Indian small farmers practice rainfed agriculture. They face a disproportionate burden of hunger and poverty and vulnerability is set to increase with deepening climate change.
Climate services can provide the intelligence to power resilience to climate shocks, particularly if tools are well adapted to the needs and priorities of users. In doing so, they are a critical tool enabling progress towards climate and sustainable development goals.
This webinar brings together academics with experts from the private sector and members of civil society, to explore current practice and potential opportunities for developing inclusive and stakeholder-focused tools. Our speakers will touch on the wider context of democratic governance in the Indian water sector, and the challenges involved in ensuring sustainable rural livelihoods in the context of a pervasive water crisis. We will then touch on specific challenges and opportunities, hearing about tools developed in the private and third sectors.
