KEY CHALLENGES

Droughts

Uneven rain patterns have left some of the areas of rural India impacted by drought. This has led to the depletion of water from the river beds and the groundwater

Farming Practices

Lack of understanding of sustainable farming practices lead the farmers to plant that sometimes takes a lot more water and the short term gain adversely impacts them and the community.

Education & Training

Rural area families need education and training to use the water in a sustainable way for the future of their family and community.

Engagement & Awareness

Villagers face a shortage of water but are unaware of the role they play in the challenges they face.

Chemical Farming

Deforestation

Unplanned Urbanization

Soil Erosion and Siltation

Over-exploitation of Groundwater

Weak Water Conservation Efforts

Global warming

Water Impacts the Community

Economic Wellbeing

Shortage of water leads to lower crop yield, which leads to lower income for the farmer family which impacts the national GDP

Societal Conflicts

Farmers fight for access to water especially when farmers with more resources pull out more water from the water bodies

Mass Migration

Without water, farmers need to find an alternate source of livelihood which results in mass migration to the larger cities
