This project will help in increasing climate resilient practices in agriculture and ensuring that farming continues to remain a financially viable activity for them.
The Maharashtra Project for Climate Resilient Agriculture will be implemented in rural areas largely dependent upon rain-fed agriculture. The project will take up a series of activities at the farm and watershed level.
