CSR and climate-resilient agriculture - a JSW case study.

The semi-arid tropics being dominant region is primarily agrarian with rainfed traditional agricultural production systems. Jawhar is a tribal block in Maharashtra, India characterized by high rainfall, water scarcity, degraded soils and low crop productivity. ICRISAT in collaboration with JSW has initiated agricultural interventions with watershed approach. Over a two-year period, the project has demonstrated various activities to build the resilience against climate change to cope with varying climatic risks and to improve livelihoods. Conservation of available resources through various measures was carried out with active community participation. Agriculture is the main source of livelihood of the community. Soil health management, rainwater harvesting, soil conservation, promotion of improved cultivars, introduction of new crops (crop diversification), income-generating activities and promotion of agronomic practices were the major interventions carried out in the project villages. These have taken farmers towards the path of building resilience to cope with climatic risks.
