Abstract

Climate change impacted adversely to each of livelihood sectors of human being. The present paper demonstrates the perception on climate change, its impact and coping strategies adopted by female rice growers. The study was conducted in one of the vulnerable districts of the state of Meghalaya in North Eastern Region (hereafter, NER). Study involved 50 numbers of female rice growers and data were analysed using logit model. The study found that farmers have been experiencing drought in the study area. Due to climate variability scarcity of essential commodities like rice availability, water and fuel to sustain their livelihood has been experienced by the female rice growers. Consequently, women need to walk down the hill for several hours to fetch water from the springs during droughts and they need to work extra hours in their fields. It caused fatigue and drudgery among the tribal women. For adapting drought, the farmers have to migrate from their place and move to other place for work. Hence, as such there was no mitigation plan for the farmers. Therefore, study suggest the site-specific intervention like local cultivar and hand driven implements to increase the yield and reducing the drudgery of women rice grower in NER.
