Source(s):  Press Trust of India (PTI)

The National Institute of Rural Development and Panchayati Raj (NIRDPR) Tuesday announced the launch of a World Bank-supported programme to train community resource persons and professionals in villages to combat the impact of climate change.

As many as 638 drought and flood-prone villages in some districts of Madhya Pradesh and Bihar will be covered initially under the initiative, which will be scaled up nationwide subsequently, the NIRDPR said in a statement.


According to the institute, the programme aims to create a cadre of over 200 certified climate-smart' community resource persons and over 100 young professionals in villages, who will combat the impact of climate change and secure their livelihood through climate proof planning and adaptations.

The cadre will further disseminate the climate resilient technologies to farming communities in their respective allocated villages, as assigned by the State Rural Livelihood Mission (SRLM) staff, it said.
