Climate-smart agricultural initiatives set to scale in India

The Government of India announced a new multi-billion dollar scheme to solarize farm irrigation on a national scale. This is due to the success of the first ever solar pump irrigator's cooperative established in Gujarat, based on research done by the International Water Management Institute (IWMI), WLE and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture and Food Security (CCAFS), with support from the Tata Trust.
