This study on farmers’ suicides is done by Indo-Global Social Service Society (IGSSS) through its local partner the Baitarani Initiative. This study was attempted to understand if farmers’ suicides were just a desperate reaction to events like droughts and crop loss or there were more fundamental roots.

This study explores whether it is a failure of the state in providing relief to the farmers or its policies which have driven them to such a desperate situation in a slow and steady manner.

Every year most parts of India are affected by drought.But the Centre and State has failed so far to diagnose the drought phenomenon and to come up with a long term solution. Declaration of drought is a sensitive issue. The nature of drought is such that it does not occur in the same intensity across the Country and State and also has differential impacts. Unless this complexity is understood drought declaration will always be controversial and not transparent.

Likewise other tribal areas, the community in Kanker, Hazaribagh and Koraput have also been facing challenges emerged due to climate variability and change. While rainfed agriculture in small and marginal land is the main livelihood practice, the NTFPs provides subsistent food, nutrition and income security round the year. The fluctuation in rainfall pattern over the year and during monsoon season, higher summer temperature and long dry period are impacting the livelihood resources, hence the food security.
