The Global Green Growth Institute (GGGI), conducted a study in two states—Haryana & West Bengal and this report brings out crucial aspects of resilient planning and management of resources under MGNREGS and makes a strong case as to why resilient agriculture, infrastructure, communities, and natural resources should be the focus of the development planning for the years to come. Through this report, the GGGI intends to support the Ministry of Rural Development to integrate climate resilience into the planning, designing, site selection, implementation as well as reporting of MGNREGS works.
