Self-Reliant Initiatives through Joint Action
Natural Resource Management
- Water is the most essential resource for all those involved in agriculture, horticulture, livestock etc. but only 35% of land is irrigated, leading to the need for WRM
- SRIJAN practices WRM in Jatara, Chhindwara, Pali, Pratapgarh, Angul and Koriya locations, and has benefited over 3000 farmers
- Our interventions include building wells, farm ponds, dug-out ponds, irrigation-cum-percolation tanks, check dams, stop dams, staggered contour trenches, field bunding etc.
- These interventions not only help conserving and optimally utilizing water but also reduce soil erosion
