Agricultural Adaptation Strategies to Climate Change

Assessing climate friendly farming behaviours in rural India

The goal was to comprehend the capacity and the ability of farmers, traditional knowledge they withheld and community networks vis-à-vis climate change adaptation in rural India. 2 blocks in the 2 selected districts of Gaya and Purnia were selected for sampling via geospatial analysis and government data. In total 400 farming households were interviewed.

The project was funded by the International Growth Centre (IGC), an initiative by London School of Economics (LSE) and University of Oxford (UoO) and we worked in collaboration with Prof. Prof. Meeta Mehra, Director, Centre for International Trade and Development, Jawaharlal Nehru University.
