Over time, smallholder farmers have adjusted their planting patterns and farming calendar to the onset, duration and end of the rainy seasons. However, with increasingly changing rainfall patterns due to climate change, their planting patterns and farming calendar no longer match seasonal rainfall distributions, which often lead to crop losses which soon or later affect the nutritional status of the members of family of farmer. In such case situation Badi’s located and developed near to house was able to mitigate not only daily additional livelihood but also as support to the nutritional requirement of the members of farmer’s family. With the Convergence of MGNREGA, NRLM, state Horticulture department schemes Badi’s are established at village that helps in nutritional security of the farm family and also supplement the needs of the vulnerable group (pregnant and lactating mothers and children below five years), to overcome the malnutrition and micro nutrient deficiency and other health consequences, it also improves the nutritional value chain by means of production, availability and stability.
