About the project:
Farmers in Punjab continue to follow the unsustainable paddy-wheat cycle in cultivation despite awareness of its impact on ground water. Absence of water savings practices, access to water saving technologies and incentives to diversify their crop mix has pushed farmers into making unviable choices. Centers for International Projects Trust (CIPT) and Hindustan Unilever Foundation (HUF) is implementing a project to seek solutions for responsible water use and long-term viability of agriculture in Punjab. The project aims to work with Punjab’s robust farmer cooperatives to promote digital water measurement solutions for efficient paddy-wheat cultivation; financial tools to track input costs with optimum water use and economic tools to trigger large scale adoption of conscious water practices.
