Five recently published case studies from India provide insights into possible responses to climate change in semi-arid rural areas in the states of Rajasthan and Andhra Pradesh. They draw experiences from the Vulnerability Assessment and Enhancing Adaptive Capacities to Climate Change (V&A) pilot programme, implemented 2005-2009 with support from the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation. The case studies cover five priority areas of interventions: water resources management, pasture land development, rice cultivation, community-based institutions, and village-level agro-meteorological observatories.
