With over 500 islands, the Andaman & Nicobar region has witnessed a series of extreme weather events which have impacted farming, one of the key income sources for the local people.
Waterlogging, salt deposits, erratic rainfall, water shortage and limited land area are challenges for practising agriculture in the islands.
The Central Island Agricultural Research Institute (CIARI), worked with farmers to implement land shaping, a climate-resilient solution.
