Kurzbeschreibung des geförderten Projekts:
The aim of this project is to gain fundamental expertise on the agricultural sector of India and China, in order to represent their reality on the modeling exercises. The funded party will carry out interviews with experts from different institutions and farming stakeholders. The interviews include an initial structured section with closed questions about farm management options, focused on water and soil management. A subsequent semi structured section will explore adaptation to climate change, water scarcity, impacts of climate change in production and farm management, and current changes in the agricultural sector. This semi-structured section consists on a group of open questions related to the topics just mentioned. The interviews will be complemented with field observation.
