The latest IPCC report, that calls for urgent action on climate change adaptation, also warns of several disasters occurring across parts of the world, said Watershed Organization Trust,”an NGO working towards sustainable growth and prosperity for disadvantaged populations in rural India.”

Across sectors and regions it is observed that the individuals and systems most at risk are disproportionately impacted.

Now, as far as India is concerned, we already know that irrigation, soil moisture management, water storage and rainwater harvesting are popular adaptive solutions for farmers and serve to support both the long-term effects of weather and short-term rainfall movements.

Whereas progress on adaptation planning and delivery across all sectors and regions has been observed with multi-faceted advantages, these were unevenly distributed and exhibited observed adaptation gaps,

Our policy encourages the cultivation of hydrointensive crops in regions with low precipitation and recovering waters, while areas with high precipitation and recovering water are often subject to a restrictive policy on groundwater resources.

The increase in weather and climate extremes has left a number of irreversible effects as natural and human systems struggle past their ability to adapt, said an accompanying explanation by IPCC authors, who include scientists in India.
