October 12, 2023

As part of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav initiative, the ICRG Programme has dedicated this compendium of 75 inspiring success stories that showcase climate resilience achieved through Mahatma Gandhi NREGA. This collection highlights the positive impacts of ICRG interventions, which ingeniously integrate climate risk management into planning and implementation of social protection programme, empowering rural communities with enhanced livelihoods and income generation. These inspiring stories hail primarily from the States of Bihar, Odisha, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and Jharkhand, showcasing reduced vulnerability to climate risks through increased groundwater availability, improved soil fertility, expanded tree cover, and the implementation of drought and flood-proofing measures, all achieved by integrating climate information services and risk management into planning and implementation of Mahatma Gandhi NREGS works. ICRG interventions at both national and sub-national levels, investment in NRM infrastructure is optimised to bolster resilient livelihoods, particularly in agriculture. This compendium is a testament to the collaborative efforts of dedicated stakeholders who have played a vital role in the successful implementation of the program across various states.
