Thank you very much for the questions which reflect a common problem in many tropical countries.
It is true that there is a gap between the process of scientific community, the think tank and the farming community, the farming practising community in the tropical developing countries. The translation of all technological exploits has not been accomplished into the general practices of the farmer. The slow response system in the community integration especially from the planners to govt. bureaucratic wings to extension system to farming community. Thus, a lack of vibrant incident response system in true sense, is one of the major source of this non realising part of knowledge. There is need of fast interacting and response system of feedback receiving and solution catering practice to channelise the full potential of scientific and technological progress to be found in the practices of the most commonest farmer. There is a need of change and remodeling of transactions among various wings of govt. to usher in a those positive technological feedbacks into common farmers practices. This can ward off the incident like farmers suicide.
Yes, DRR and CC should be integrated to the Govt.policies. in fact these are integrated in one way or other into the Govt.policies but mere inclusion is not enough. There should be meaningful integration instead of mere inclusion of the same. DRR and CC would provide a vision to judiciously frame out the vulnerability of the area specific to the problems. This integration would enable the policy guideline during the rare crisis moment to provide a rapid solution.
