Maharashtra Government has approved a 4,000-crore rupee project aimed at promoting climate-resilient agriculture.

A government resolution issued recently informs that the project, named Nanaji Deshmukh Krishi Sanjivani Yojna, will be implemented in 5,142 villages across 15 districts. Objectives of the project will be to improve soil quality, develop foodgrain varieties which can sustain climate variations and effect necessary changes in the crop pattern as per the availability of water in a particular region.

The scheme would cover small- and medium- scale farmers, who are more vulnerable to the impact of climate change. About 70 percent of the project’s cost will be borne by the World Bank while the state will contribute 30 percent over six years. The project will roll out in the upcoming financial year.
