This study undertakes a pan-India sub-district level (tehsil-level) assessment of changing monsoon patterns during the southwest monsoon (June to September) and northeast monsoon (October to December).

Reducing black carbon emissions will help in avoiding climate tipping points, building resilience and delivering clean air. This policy brief outlines the latest science on black carbon, examples of cost effective solutions, and recommendations for policymakers, funders and governments.

India is in the tropical monsoon zone and received plenty of rainfall. Most of the annual rainfall occurs during the summer monsoon season (June-September) every year. However, the distribution of rainfall over the entire Indian region is not homogeneous.

Order of the Supreme Court of India in the matter of Ajitsinh Malubhai Ghummad & Others Vs Union of India & Others dated 11/08/2021.

The challenge in the present appeal is to an order passed by the National Consumer Dispute Redressal Commission (Commission), January 26, 2009, whereby the revision petitions filed by the appellants were dismissed.

A new combined drought indicator (CDI) is proposed that integrates rainfall, soil moisture and vegetation dynamics. The performance of this indicator was evaluated against crop damage data from agricultural insurance schemes in five different areas in SW Sp

Global warming is expected to increase the frequency and intensity of severe water scarcity (SWS) events, which negatively affect rain-fed crops such as wheat, a key source of calories and protein for humans. Here, we develop a method to simultaneously quantify SWS over the world’s entire wheat-growing area and calculate the pro

The summer monsoon of 2019 began with a massive deficit in the all-India June rainfall of about 33% of the mean. This led to considerable anxiety since a large deficit in June had occurred last in the summer monsoon of 2014, which had turned out to be a drought.

The Food and Nutrition Security Assessment (FNSA) is a multi-agency, multi-sectoral exercise led by the government of Kenya, and is conducted in 23 arid and semi-arid Counties.

Rain-fed agriculture currently constitutes 60–95% of farmed land across the developing world. Changing rainfall patterns could have a large impact on agriculture in developing countries. Using over 20 different climate models, researchers have projected how precipitation could be affected by climate change.

Overcast skies and intermittent showers notwithstanding, pre-monsoon rains in Punjab this year are deficient by 76 per cent so far, making it worst-hit state in the region and among top three acros
