The Institute for Climate and Agricultural Reorientation (ICARe) was established in 2003 as a subordinate project entity under the Federation of Village Panchayat Institutions, and in 2021, it was duly registered as an autonomous organisation under the Trust Registration Act 1860 of the Government of NCT Delhi. Currently, the institute is located at A-263 Vishavkarma Colony, MB Road, New Delhi-44. The main aim of the institute is to uplift the socio-economic condition in rural areas, spread awareness in rural communities, and enhance people's engagement through contractual project interventions. The institute is mainly focusing on the most pressing contemporary challenges, i.e., climate change, food and energy security, agriculture, education, socio-economic challenges, and unemployment.

Changing Climate: Indicating a Negative Future
It poses a serious threat to the development, well-being, and food security of our country. Therefore, a structured response to the climate issue is very necessary for sustainable growth. In order to live in peace with socio-economic security, we must improve our response in order to expand our overall productivity. Let's aid the agricultural sector in protecting the environment. We all have a responsibility to uphold our shared beliefs. Goals and dreams of all can only be fulfilled in this way.

Agriculture: Transformation for Sustainability
Agriculture is the backbone of rural communities, providing income and employment opportunities for local people. So, we are promoting modern agricultural skills to the agripreneurs in every Gram Panchayat and creating harmony between the various fields with the support of Gram-Sabha of the local Gram Panchayat administration by disseminating or exchanging knowledge thereof and providing the latest technological facilities with the villagers’ own collaborative support, as would lead to their universal application.

Education -

  • Provide access to professional coaching in agriculture and allied services to rural segments of society and use a variety of the latest technologies in imparting coaching special for girls.
  • Offer high-quality, innovative, and need-based programme at the Gram Panchayat level.
  • Reach out to the disadvantaged by offering programme in rural areas at affordable costs.
  • To achieve the twin objectives of widening access to all sections of rural society and providing continual professional development and training to all sections of the economy

Generate non-farm income: Empowerment through Awareness and Knowledge
For the non-farm sector of the rural economy, state wise activities in backward districts to achieve the following outcomes:

  • Creation of a financial safety net to finance and mitigate losses to the farm sector in case of a weather shock
  • Providing a long-term solution through allied services, i.e., judicial use of Agri-waste in biogas, organic fertilizer and modern dairy, etc., to create employment

The idea behind this is to culturally shape the wings of the young generation so that they can raise their intentions to such new heights so as to take a stand against the social ill-effects of adverse tidal waves. The Institute provides an open stage for performing artists from the schools across India, both classical and folk, to show their performing art as well as artwork through competition at its annual "Together, dancing against the waves" programme, among other special events.
