What does Climate Change have to do with Farming Families?

Anand is a media activist working in one of the most sensitive areas in the country-- Malegaon, Maharastrata. Born in a migrant Dalit family, he chronicles caste oppression, denial of basic rights to his community and the toll that migration has on them. Motiram Dive and his son Subhash Dive have been farming all their lives, like their ancestors before them. They describe how deforestation teamed with rampant industrialisation have affected their way of life. Farming in dry weather and still air requires extra labour and money but yields little produce. This video is part of a project by Video Volunteers and the Indian Network for Ethics and Climate Change to document the effects of climate change on local communities across 14 states in India. These communities tell our CCs how changing weather patterns affects their livelihoods and that little has been done to help them cope.
