Community Based Organizations (CBOs)

123 Climate Change Adaptation Committees (CCACs) are formed in the 143 habitations of the 9 Pilot Hydrological Units (HUs) of seven drought prone districts of Andhra Pradesh. These 123 habitation-level CCACs federate at the hydrological unit level to form 9 Pilot Community Based Organizations (CBOs).

The CBOs, called as HU-level Climate Change Adaptation Committees (CCACs), provide a platform for populations vulnerable to drought and water scarcity due to climate change/variability. They are key farmers’ institutions that manage the climate monitoring system at the hydrological unit level and disseminate information and knowledge on climate variability/change. This includes identification of site for establishing climate monitoring system, selection of volunteers, data collection, and update climate change database. Further, they will lead the organization and conduct of Farmers Climate Schools (FCS). This will include curriculum design, organize village meetings, select FCS farmer participants, identify Community Resource Persons (CRPs), form Common Interest Groups (CIGs), conduct of CFS sessions, identify pilots to test adaptation measures, select field sites for pilots, prepare climate change adaptation plans, conduct field days, and disseminate project lessons and results. The PNGOs will back stop the CBOs in implementing these activities. The PNGOs will sign a MOU with the CBOs for effective implementation of project activities, monitoring, and development of annual work plans.
