Food Security & Climate Resilience

As the raging monsoons continue to wreck havoc in northern India, millions of people are forced out of their homes due to floods and landslides. In flood ravaged states of Bihar and Assam, people are struggling to meet their basic needs of food, shelter, healthcare. With 440 people dead, 10.8 million people marooned by flood waters, Bihar is among the worst hit. Pragya team is reaching out to people in flood affected villages in Araria and Kishangunj districts of Bihar.

Your support can help us expand our relief efforts, and cater to the needs of thousands more who require assistance.

Climate change has severe impacts on the rural communities we work with that are almost wholly dependant on the natural resources available locally for their food and their livelihoods. Many of these communities have always had to contend with food insecurity and seasonal hunger. Ecosystem degradation and change, changes in weather patterns and their consequences on agriculture, in the context of climate change, are leading to a food crisis and chronic hunger for these communities.

Pragya is working to educate communities on the nature of climate change and the need for adaptation. We also seek to help the communities adapt to the ecological changes resulting from climate change, with suitable changes in the agriculture and resource use patterns. Local research on the emerging climate regime includes study of changing weather patterns as well as farm-level experimentation with new crops and water management to suit changes in climate.

The project is being implemented in:
12 districts of the Indian Himalayas, across the western, central and eastern divisions; and 3 districts of the Nepal Himalayas (Humla, Dolpa and Mustang)
