While most parts of the country are facing a water crisis, here’s a case from the arid state of Rajasthan, where decentralized initiatives are solving water issues. Dungarpur in southern Rajasthan has exemplified how community participation with local level planning processes are working towards improving rainwater harvesting and recharge of groundwater.
This research document studies the watershed development region of Dungarpur district three villages i.e. Adiwat, Anpura and Charwada. It contains data on hydro geological condition of these place, their natural drainage system with their capacities. It also gives data on aquifer and recharge capacity according to rainfall and topography of the region. Illustrative maps are shown.
Possibility of revival of dug wells in hard rock India through recharge: A discussion paper by CAREWATERposted 10 years 9 months ago
The discussion paper by Carewater INREM Foundation on possibility of revival of dug wells in hard rock India through recharge is based on a field study across ten districts of the country. The study seeks to understand how localized governance of groundwater in hard rock areas is to be pursued through pricing (water, energy), legal regulation and community institutions. Water supply augmentation and demand management are both to be taken care of, directly through regulation or through indirect instruments such as pricing.
