In 2023, Institute for Social and Economic Change (ISEC), in partnership with Hanns Seidel Foundation India, developed the White Paper on combating agricultural drought through micro-irrigation (MI). The Paper provides an incisive analysis to get quickly to the heart of the issues faced by farmers in adopting the micro-irrigation technologies. Despite the state government taking up various policy initiatives to deepen the coverage of micro irrigation, the state has miles to go before it reaches a satisfactory level for complete drought proofing in Karnataka. The Paper combines experts' inputs and farmers' perceptions from the fields on MI adoption to develop strategies to combat droughts.
