On May 1, 2020, WOTR brought together a diverse range of stakeholders including policy makers, government officials, researchers, corporate donor representatives, and development practitioners for a half-day virtual workshop in order to reach a consensus on Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) for building resilience to COVID-19 in rural Maharashtra.
COVID-19 Rapid Response (June 30,2020)
As the whole world stares at an uncertain future, Watershed Organisation Trust has been at the forefront, helping vulnerable communities in rural India cope with the aftermath of COVID-19. We are doing whatever it takes to mobilise support through our regional resource centres to tackle the challenges faced by farmers who are engaged in agricultural activities as the Kharif season begins.
WOTR is supporting communities in its project areas to adapt to the post-COVID-19 scenario. We have reached out to 124,238 households in 657 villages of 26 districts in seven states as per data available on June 30.
Here is a wrap of our activities based on data gathered up to June 30.
