Workshop on Climate Change Adjacency using Systems Thinking with CINI , India – July, 2020

DESTA conducted a 4 day online workshop with COLLECTIVES FOR INTEGRATED LIVELIHOOD INITIATIVES (CInI), an initiative of TATA Trusts, in collaboration with India Climate Collaborative (ICC). This workshop was aimed at identifying climate change linkages of their project Lakhpati Kissan. This was done through use of tools of systems thinking like – BOTG, CLDs – where participants were made to work in break out groups and reflect on their assumptions about how their project interacts with climate change adaptation and mitigation. The participants reflected that through this workshop and the use of systems thinking tools, they were able to internalise climate change and develop an endogenous perspective of climate change for their project. The workshop was attended by 20 participants from different field locations of CINI in India.
