Climate Crisis and Sustainable Development

The additionality of the impacts of Climate Change in the development narrative of Adivasis exacerbates their already existing levels of marginalization and augments their vulnerability. Erratic rainfall patterns, temperature rise, and higher frequency of extreme natural events add to the vulnerability of these communities especially since they are dependent on natural resources.

The last decade has seen a gradual but steady rise in our involvement in these areas:

  • Climate friendly technologies
  • Climate change awareness and education
  • Community resilience to Climate Change
  • Policy advocacy
