The project with Samvardhan will be in Vidarbha region of Maharashtra where there is a need to initiate climate change resilient agriculture practices to reduce the effect of climate change on agriculture. It will directly engage with 1200 farmer beneficiaries and make them ready for climate change adaptation and sustainable livelihood. The main intervention will include de-siltation of the first order and second order stream so that it will restore the water table as flood control will be achieved in the area.
Farmers will perform SoCC earning activities like stream mapping, watershed management work, farm bunding, plantation drive, forming farmers groups for policy level intervention and advocacy, etc.
And redeem it for soil testing of all farmers farmland, de-siltation of first order streams, establishment of organic manure unit, support for organic cultivation toolkits, etc.
