RFP title: RFP for Preparation of Project Document for Infrastructure for Climate Resilient Growth (ICRG) to be implemented in M.P., U.P., Rajasthan and Chattisgarh
Background & Context:
Climate change impacts are increasingly being felt across the globe and these impacts are felt differently by different groups of people – depending upon their capacity/vulnerability. It is observed that poor people are the most vulnerable owing to their lack of capacity to adapt and/or mitigate the adverse impacts of climate change. With more than 20% population living below poverty line, and almost 45% of the population relying on rain‐fed agriculture, India is one of the countries that is most vulnerable to climatic variations. Any adverse impact on water availability due to changes in precipitation levels and falling groundwater tables are likely to adversely affect livelihoods and food security. Along with economic stress, climate change has an adverse social bearing on vulnerable communities. Thus, it becomes imperative to strengthen the resilience of these communities by developing a robust and well‐planned rural infrastructure.
