National Dalit Watch

NDW: Over the years, NDW’s work has enabled greater awareness about disaster risks and preparedness among the communities and Dalit/Adivasi organisations and leaders, ensuing in realization of relief entitlements and other social security schemes by the vulnerable communities. Whilst continuing to engage with the State and humanitarian stakeholders at different levels, NDW has initiated the engagement on Climate Change Adaptation from the social justice lens in most vulnerable states of Bihar, Odisha, Tamil Nadu, Maharashtra, and Bundelkhand region in Uttar Pradesh. The first phase aims at creating awareness about climate change related risks and the states’ climate action plans to make them responsive to the vulnerabilities and adaptation needs of the marginalized communities.
