Climate Resilient World

Climate Resilient World

As the risks from a warming world intensify, so will the consequences for humanity and the natural environment—from disruptions in food, water, and energy supplies to increases in damage from extreme weather and sea level rise. Climate change is expected to increase the number of poor people in both developed and developing countries, jeopardizing sustainable development. Climate resilience world refers to a socio-ecological system which has capacity to absorb stresses imposed by Climate Change, and to adapt, reorganize, and evolve into more desirable configurations that improve the sustainability of the system, leaving it better prepared for future climate change impacts. Building a climate resilient world doesn’t mean taking one initiative or protective measures, instead it is looking at a complete picture including policies, governance and management structures on a national and community level, and a combination of hard and soft measure that one looks at as a complete package. It’s not just about one intervention


What are we doing ?

INCREASING GREEN COVER

This is at our topmost priority. In the process of “development”, trees have always been cut ruthlessly. It is no wonder to know that deforestation or cutting of trees are always faster than afforestation. Trees contribute to our environment by providing oxygen, improving air quality, climate amelioration, conserving water, preserving soil, and supporting wildlife. They also control climate by moderating the effects of the sun, rain and wind. From community or social values to ecological, spiritual, and economic values, trees are very significant for us. We strive to increase green cover in order to make our world climate resilient.

Activities:
 Promoting afforestation.
 Creating awareness among masses on importance of trees and green cover.
 Organizing mass plantation events.
 Working with close cooperation with NGOs, local government, educational institutions, government agencies so as to ensure the overall increase in green cover.

CLIMATE RESILIENT AGRICULTURE

India with almost 65% of its population dependent on agriculture, is a primarily an agrarian country. India is not excluded from the disastrous impact of climate change, so as it’s agriculture. The challenges posed by the climate change, indicate serious threat for agriculture, which could eventually impact food security. We must take a call on taking measures to tackle the impact of climate change on agriculture. We are working for adaption of climate resilient and sustainable agriculture.

Activities:
 Capacity building of farmers.
 Enhancing the resilience of crops, livestock and fisheries to climatic variability and climate change through development and application of improved production and risk management technologies.
 Dissemination of best practices.
 Conducting strategic research on adaptation and mitigation and disseminate.
