Workshop on practices and policies on rainfed farming systems

While rain fed farming systems are considered the backbone of rural communities, they are prone to several issues ranging from water stress, eroded and unsuitable soil, crop failure, food insecurity, inadequate nutrition, declining income levels, migration in search of alternative livelihoods, etc. Urgent interventions are required to revitalize rain fed farming systems and make them resilient and sustainable. The participatory workshop will be an ideal platform for various stakeholders in the rain fed farming sector to get together and share best practices, find solutions to key issues, and influence policy measures.
