DEHRADUN: The watershed management departmentate has now decided to provide a livelihood to villagers in Uttarakhand's nine hill districts as a result of the climate responsive agriculture system, which is now one of the most significant measures to meet local needs.Therefore, the state government has now decided to introduce new technologies and innovative means to provide jobs right at their doorstep, keeping climate change at the forefront of planning, as per the World Bank approved initiative-Uttarakhand Climate Responsive Rain-fed Farming Initiative.To ensure that the border zones and mountains are not harmed by climate change, villagers will be provided with different methods of farming and livestock raising.The problem of migration inflicting border villages has engulfed the system.

They also said that they are moving out of their villages due to poor crops.We will promote less water-intensive crops in Uttarakhand and lay the entire agenda of reorienting our farmers to horticulture products, vegetables, cash crops, poultry and goat farming in the mountains because it requires little water and the natural environment of mountains allows for such activities.The farmers should not be concerned that the changing climate is affecting them, as we all know that the mountains are heating up.Because the World Bank has awarded Rs 1,000 crore to them, we would encourage them to get out of traditional means of earning from farms and livestock, according to Dr. DS Rawat of the watershed management planning unit.

People have been complaining about the huge differences between day and night temperatures in the hills, affecting their overall living style and thus earnings.It will be the first time that mountain people are being converted to other types of farming on such a large scale.
