ANTHROPOLOGICAL INSIGHTS FOR FOOD SECURITY AND CLIMATE CHANGE By Prof. Joan P Mencher
Photo Two Anthropologists have an essential role in addressing the issues of food security and sustainable development in the context of humanogenic climate change. Studies of small-scale sustainable agriculture show the many ways in which small farmers have been dealing with food security issues and coping with climate stress. The successes of SRI/SCI, a new set of agricultural strategies, show a potential to reverse the damage caused by decades of for-profit agriculture, and provide a meaningful living for millions of Indian farm families. Anthropologists can be important advocates for farmers.

AIF METHOD COURSE BROCHURE
Objective of the Course
The objective of this course is to impart rigor and advanced skills in conducting qualitative research. Indian scholarship in academics, especially in social sciences suffer due to lack of rigor in research methods. This restricts transformation of research in replicability and application; and limits wider dissemination through publication, especially in national/ international journals of repute. Rigor in doing qualitative research mostly embedded in anthropological sub-disciplines will enable young scholars from universities to update and refresh research skills, keeping in line with the realm of trans-disciplinarily, multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary.
