    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Friday 1 January 2010
    Objective: 
    Approach: 

    Is there a strong gender dimension to experiences with climate variability and coping strategies? This publication on the topic of food security in Andrha Pradesh, India finds that there is. It is a report on a study carried out by the Food and Agricultural Organisation of the United Nations (FAO), with financing from the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). The research was undertaken in six villages in two drought-prone districts: Mahbudnagar and Anantapur in Andhra Pradesh, India.

  • Carbon Allocation, Sequestration and Carbon Dioxide Mitigation under Plantation Forests of North Western Himalaya, India

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Tuesday 1 January 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    According to this study, organic carbon and soils of the world comprise the bulk of the terrestrial carbon and serve as a major sink and source of atmospheric carbon. Increasing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases (GHGs) may be mitigated by increasing carbon sequestration in vegetation and soil. The study attempted to estimate the biomass production and carbon sequestration potential of different plantation ecosystems in north-western Himalaya, India.

  • Carbon Stock Potential of Oak and Pine Forests in Garhwal Region in Indian Central Himalayas

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Wednesday 1 May 2013
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    According to this study, greenhouse gas emissions (GHGs), especially carbon dioxide (CO2) are continuously accumulating in the atmosphere. Thus, global warming is spilling its ill impacts on the forest ecosystems of the Himalayas. The increased CO2 needs to be sequestered to strike an ecological balance and reverse global warming trends. Forests and soils are the natural sinks for carbon. Oak (Quercus leucotichophora) and pine (Pinus roxburghii) are the two most dominant forest types in the Indian Central Himalayas.

  • Climate Change Impact, Adaptation and Mitigation in Agriculture: Methodology for Assessment and Application

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date: 
    Sunday 1 January 2012
    Objective: 
    Sectors: 

    The report presents the standard methodologies for studying the impacts of climate change on agriculture, measuring and developing inventories of greenhouse gas emissions and analyzing the vulnerabilities and mitigation options. With each methodology a case study has been presented illustrating the steps to be followed to achieve the objectives.
