The project aims to enhance the resilience of Indian agriculture to climate change and climate vulnerability through strategic research and technology demonstrations. The research on adaptation and mitigation covers crops, livestock, fisheries, and natural resource management. The project consists of four components viz. Strategic Research, Technology Demonstration, Capacity Building and Sponsored/Competitive Grants.
It aims to enhance the resilience of Indian agriculture covering crops, livestock, and fisheries to climatic variability and climate change through the development and application of improved production and risk management technologies.
