Climate Change and Sustainable Agriculture: Monitoring, Modeling and Networking (CCSAMMN)
Climate Change and Sustainable Agriculture: Monitoring, Modeling and Networking (CCSAMMN) will provide creation and bidirectional
(land/farmers to research/scientific establishments and vice versa) dissemination of climate change related information and knowledge by way of piloting
climate change adaptation/mitigation research/model projects in the domain of climate smart sustainable management practices and integrated farming system
suitable to local agro-climatic conditions. The dedicated expert teams of technical personnel will be institutionalised within NMSA to rigorously monitor
and evaluate the mission activities thrice in a year and will inform the National Committee.
Comprehensive pilot blocks will be supported to illustrate functional mechanism for dissemination of rainfed technologies, planning, convergence and
coordination with flagship schemes/Missions like MGNREGS, IWMP, Accelerated Irrigation Benefit Programme (AIBP), RKVY, NFSM, NHM, NMAET etc. Such an
integrated action of input and output flows across agriculture, livestock and other production systems will harness the growth potential of the rainfed
production systems, imparting sustainability of local production systems while negotiating climate change risks.
A consortium approach will be evolved with various stake holders including knowledge partners like State Agricultural Universities (SAUs), Krishi Vigyan
Kendras (KVKs), Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR) Institutes etc. by the State Government to provide single window service/knowledge provider
system for the benefit of farming community. Financial support may be provided through States to institutionalize the concept and meeting supplementary
Climate change related monitoring, feedback, knowledge networking and skill development will also be supported under this component through State Agricultural
Universities, ICAR Institutes National/International Institutes, KVKs, Public/Private R&D Organizations etc. Awarding of Studies, Documentation &
Publication, Domestic and Foreign Training, Workshops/Conferences etc. will be supported under this component.
