To assist farmers cope with climate change ICRISAT has been working on different approaches. The thrust, lessons learnt and the impact of five main models used for building climate-smart villages have been compiled as part of a feature in the ICRISAT Annual Report. Working for over 40 years in the semi-arid tropics, with varied partners, ICRISAT has developed climate resilient dryland crops and a pool of climate-smart technologies that are used in all of its climate-smart project interventions. Put together, the approaches focused on equipping farmers to use climate-smart scientific interventions and innovations, use climate information for cropping decisions, diversify livelihoods, link to markets, make agriculture profitable, rehabilitate and restore their environment and influence policy maker.
