CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS) has introduced the model of "Climate Smart Villages (CSVs)" in India, and is slowly scaling up and expanding to other countries in the South Asia region. www.ccafs.cgiar.org The idea is to raise awareness among farming communities in South Asia about various technological, institutional and policy-oriented options that have the potential to increase their climatic resilience, adaptation, agricultural productivity and income, while reducing emissions of greenhouse gases. One piece of the agriculture puzzle is ensuring advisory services within agriculture for farmers, which this video shows. www.ccafs.cgiar.org
