Climate Change and Crop-Livestock Farming Systems Semi-arid regions India

Inde

Titre : Climate Change and Crop-Livestock Farming Systems Semi-arid regions India

Pays : Inde

Localisation  : Irrigated & Rainfed Regions of Haryana state - Semi-arid regions

Durée : 2011/2012

Descriptif
The project attempts to develop and popularize potential climate resilient technologies in agriculture and livestock farming which will address vulnerable areas of the study in Haryana state. The outputs of the scheme will help the districts prone to extreme weather conditions like droughts, floods, frost, heat waves, hailstorms etc. to better cope with climate variability.

Objectif  : To study the existing perception, & ITKs’ followed by the respondents on adaptation to climate change

Résultats attendus
The analysis of farmers’ perceptions of climate change indicates that most of the farmers in the study are aware that impact on climate in crop-livestock farming systems. (Eg. trend of rising temperature and the level of rainfall & ground water is declining) Identified & selected the potential Indigenous Traditional Knowledge (ITK’s) against climate change risk in the study area. Analysed the farmer’s perception & their adaptation options through Logistic regression models. Respondent’s knowledge on climate variability & change and their constraints have been addressed.

Organismes impliqués : Scientist’s from Dairy Extension Division, NDRI, Karnal, Haryana, India.
