Andhra Pradesh Drought Mitigation Project

Smallholders in the Rayalseema region and Prakasam area of Andhra Pradesh are affected by vulnerability to drought and depletion of groundwater resources in a context of climate change and climate variability. The Andhra Pradesh Drought Mitigation Project strategy has two main aims:

  • to build the adaptive capacity of farmers to drought through more efficient crop water management and income diversification into livestock;
  • management of existing water resources through building Gram Panchayat capacity in water planning and monitoring.

The project will work to improve farmers' practices in using and producing drought tolerant crop varieties; managing soil fertility and moisture; access weather information, crop advisories and farmers' field schools to help farmers shift towards less water demanding and more diversified yet profitable cropping system. Livestock production systems will be improved by aiding sheep producers with better housing, feeding and breeding, and a backyard poultry scheme targeted at the poorest women. Farmers' organizations will also be strengthened.
