How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more
I have a determined focus on vulnerability, agriculture, and climate change. My work focuses on the impacts of climate change on agriculture, which can be defined as the key to solving issues of food insecurity.
Himalayan agriculture households face an increased risk of vulnerability due to its harsh intrinsic social and environmental factors. And the changing climatic conditions are further enhancing the vulnerability of these systems. To improve adaptation strategies and policy formulation, the impact of climate change on a household level needs to be ac...
Assessing global progress on human adaptation to climate change is an urgent priority. Although the literature on adaptation to climate change is rapidly expanding, little is known about the actual extent of implementation. We systematically screened >48,000 articles using machine learning methods and a global network of 126 researchers. Our synthe...
We present the first systematic, global stocktake of the academic literature on human adaptation. We screen 48,316 documents and identify 1,682 articles that present empirical research documenting human efforts to reduce risk from climate change and associated hazards. Coding and synthesizing this literature highlights that the overall extent of ad...
The fragile landscape of Himalaya harbors a wide range of natural resource dependent communities. However, they are the primary receivers for any adverse social and environmental changes. The study explored the impact of climate variability, disaster, migration, and wildlife on resource utilization pattern of two natural resource dependent Socio-Ec...
Vulnerability assessment is an important step in developing adaptation strategies. For biogeographically vital and extremely heterogeneous regions like Himalaya, assessing vulnerability as an inherent characteristic becomes crucial. The present study assesses the inherent vulnerability (IV) for farming communities of Himachal Pradesh as a function...
Human and Ecological Risk Assessment: An International Journal Assessing impact of varied social and ecological conditions on inherent vulnerability of Himalayan agriculture communities Assessing impact of varied social and ecological conditions on inherent vulnerability of Himalayan agriculture communities
Threats of changing climatic conditions on Himalayan agriculture communities are well established and observed. predisposed margi-nalized social and fragile ecological conditions have increased vulnerability of these communities. However, as vulnerability varies spatially and is effected by the bio-geographical conditions, the information on vulner...
