Achieving climate resilience and wellbeing in West Bengal

14 November 2019, 12:24 GMT

West Bengal is an agrarian state located in eastern India and its agricultural sector is currently under threat by shrinking water resources and growing population. 

To tackle these challenges, West Bengal launched an initiative in 2012 for the enhancement of agricultural production in several districts including arid regions and coastal belt.

The Water Resource Investigation and Development Department of the state government is doing this through a World Bank assisted project ‘West Bengal Accelerated Development of Minor Irrigation Project’.

The project aims to enhance agriculture production among small and marginal farmers in remote rain-fed areas of West Bengal and is expected to end in December 2019.
