Risk and Resilience in Assam's Tea Industry

In partnership with Mercy Corps, Okapi conducted a landscape scale study on risk and resilience in Assam's tea industry. The study identifies how tea cultivators in upper Assam perceive, rank and respond to natural, economic, social and political shocks and stresses. We recommend strategies and identify opportunities to enhance the resilience of Assam's tea industry with a focus on worker wellbeing; work transitions; and mechanisms for collective learning and adaptation.
