Event details

Farmers in India are increasingly experiencing multiple, interlinked stressors from climate to soil and water. Ranjay will share his insights from over 450 survey responses from farmers in two communities adjacent to wetlands in Uttar Pradesh, India. He will discuss the most problematic experienced stressors, and the strategies farmers are adopting to combat them.
