This policy document builds upon NRAA’s vision as outlined above and incorporates integral policy measures for sustainable rainfed agriculture, inclusive of recognizing new vulnerabilities such as climate change, farmers’ distress resulting in seasonal migration, severe malnutrition in rainfed areas, and India’s commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, in addition to various international commitments. The commitment to SDGs 2030 will reiterate the concerns, relating to farmers’ income & their purchasing power, as also nutrition security and ecological sustainability.
