In an era of deepening climate risk, some 600 million Indian farmers rely heavily on seasonal rains for their food and livelihood. Research Fellow Zareen Bharucha’s work critically explores the adaptation programmes that have tried to build resilience. Their critique will primarily centre on the social construction of the ‘crisis’ of climate-driven water scarcity, and show how this construction has led to patchy, partial and short-lived solutions. Free to attend, open to all, refreshments provided
