This video was produced as part of a four-year (2016–2020) intervention to scale out weather resilient agricultural intervention through a successful CCAFS approach—the Climate-Smart Villages (CSV). The intervention strives to improve the adaptability and resilience of farmers in the relatively food insecure and vulnerable regions of India, and to use this evidence in supporting designs of large-scale climate adaptation programs being implemented or being developed in India. A mix of locally relevant climate-smart technologies and practices, identified based on global knowledge, and complemented with weather information services are implemented in the CSVs.
The project is funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and is being implemented by CCAFS, in collaboration with BAIF (a local NGO), the ICT industry (climate services and market linkage), insurance industry (crop insurance program), input suppliers (for seeds, fertilizers and machines), and local government line departments (knowledge partners).
The video highlights the positive impact the intervention has made at grassroots level.
