Drought Preparedness of Vulnerable Sections in Rural Telangana

Overview and Objectives

The project is a policy research study funded by UNICEF with a focus on reviewing drought policies of India and Telangana at intersections of policies of disaster management, agriculture, water, sanitation, livelihood, food security, and health. There is a particular focus on socioeconomic inequalities and vulnerable groups. The project designed for a short period of four months aims at combining a study of various policy documents, mapping, and field based insights on access to drought policies by various caste and class categories of households in rural Telangana as well gendered impacts of droughts.

Duration and Funding

UNICEF’s goal is to advance the rights of children, adolescents and women to survival, growth, development, participation and protection by reducing inequities based on caste, ethnicity, gender, poverty, region or religion. Beginning its work in India in 1949, currently, it advocates for the rights of India’s children in 16 states. UNICEF is fully committed to working with the Government of India to ensure that each child born in this vast and complex country gets the best start in life, thrives and develops to his or her full potential..
