Towards more sustainable and regenerative rainfed agriculture in India and Ethiopia
FOLU India Sustainable Rainfed Agriculture Programme (FISRAP) is part of the FOLU Coalition and World Resources Institute programme – “Towards More Sustainable and Regenerative Rainfed Agriculture in India and Ethiopia - An effective approach to sustainably transform agricultural practices and deliver social and economic co-benefits”, a project supported by IKEA Foundation. This is also a part of the FOLU India Sustainable Agriculture Initiative (FISAI). This project currently aims towards developing three state-level strategy action plans in India -one each for the states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana and Maharashtra, to achieve the widescale adoption of sustainable and regenerative agricultural practices in the rainfed areas of the state. The project will be implemented in pilot landscapes with considerable dryland and rainfed agriculture areas (Ananthapuramu in Andhra Pradesh, Vikarabad in Telangana and Gadchiroli in Maharashtra). In this project FOLU India plans to develop detailed landscape-level sustainable and regenerative agriculture implementation plans and establish operational and research frameworks for comprehensive action in Phase 2.
