Abstract:

Understanding the ‘Resilience status’ of farmer especially livestock farmers is very important as it can indicate the individual farmer’s coping ability against extreme weather events. One resilience scale was developed to measure the resilience of farmers. A total of 29 statements/ items were sent to different judges and their opinion and rating was recorded by using ‘Google form’. On the basis of calculation of ‘t-values’ 14 items were retained for final ‘Resilience Scale’ construction. Then from 102 respondents, responses were recorded to identify the dimensions of ‘resilience’ against extreme weather event. ‘Factor Analysis’ was used for identifying the dimensions. A total of five components were explaining 72.814 percent of total variability. The five component were named as ‘Extreme weather preparedness dimension’, ‘Peer Support and recognition dimension’, ‘Pessimistic attitudinal dimension’, ‘Optimistic attitudinal dimension’ and ‘Priority setting dimension’. The developed ‘Resilience scale’ can be handy tool to measure resilience status of farmers and support policy makers in decision making and field extension worker for prioritizing activities.
