Jeevani Project : A Mitigation Proposal for Revitalizing Agriculture in Kerala in the background of COVID-19

The Covid 19 pandemic is a global crisis seriously affecting the food and agricultural sector. The United Nations has warned that the Covid-19 crisis could trigger “food shortages” around the world. The World Food programme (WFP) has noted that the Covid-19 crisis is “threatening to affect millions of people already made vulnerable by food insecurity and malnutrition.” Small and marginal farmers will be badly affected if they are unable to continue working on their land, produce commodities remunerative product prices, and gain access to markets.
Prompt measures ensuring enhanced food supply by cultivating adequate food crops and maintaining uninterrupted food supply chains are of paramount importance for Kerala State.
