Description:
Rajasthan has only about 1.16% of country’s water resources; whereas state occupies about 10.5% of country’s geographical area. State’s water resources are scarce & future development & prosperity depends largely on sustainable & efficient allocation & utilization of its water resources. State has 245 lac hectare area as rainfed as against the total geographical area of 342 lac ha, which is about 72%. It is a big challenge to ensure sustainable agriculture production from vast rained areas, taking care of market demand & better returns of the produce to the farmers.
SRS is working in Cluster Mokhampura, District Jaipur with Rajasthan Agriculture Competitiveness project, Supported by World Bank. The objective of the project in watershed (rainfed) cluster is to achieve a hydrological balance across watershed (Rainfed) clusters supported through RACP. The allocations & utilizations of water resources within the watershed clusters for various uses would be limited to the amount of total annual available water for watershed & without adversely affecting the present commitments/usage of water flows to downstream watersheds /areas. SRS is playing a role of field NGO for this project and providing regular handholding to the project to achieve its objective. Efficient water management through soil & water conservation measures is the key for sustainable development of rainfed areas. Therefore, in Mokhampura cluster, where water management opportunities exist, is selected by the project for integrated development of value chain with focus on efficient use of rain water, integrated farming system for increasing productivity, livelihood, enhanced and continuous income for the farmers. Integrated watershed approach for conserving natural resources i.e. water, soil, vegetation has been accepted as major theme for rainfed area development. SRS supported the project in field through regular meetings with farmers to strengthen them, Capacity Building of farmers group, Baseline Survey, farmer’s Need Assessment, coordination between project and beneficiaries to achieve all interventions mentioned under the Soil & Water Conservation component of project objective. SRsw is working with 3278 farmers in Mokhampura.
