As part of a CARE project with women farmers adaptation strategies to climate change impacts in south India, we partnered with Deccan Development Society (DDS), a grassroots organization based in Pastapur village, near Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh. As part of the project, on January 2, 2013, we set up an advisory board meeting with about 15 women farmers on January 2, 2013 at DDS office in Pastapur village, Zaheerabad Mandal, Medak District in Andhra Pradesh. On our journey from Hyderabad to Pastapur, we saw several cotton farms, which we came to know later were all Bt cotton crops, and that Bt cotton was making a comeback in the state.
