This GRIPP Case Profile assesses whether the proactive involvement of rural communities in the management of groundwater positively contributes towards sustainable resource use. The assessment uses the long-term

This book presents 28 real-life examples of managed aquifer recharge (MAR) from around the world, where, at village to state level, people have collaborated to improve quantity and quality of water supplies and buffer them against drought and emergencies.

This paper assesses how the Huruluwewa tank (HWT) irrigation system in the North Central Province of Sri Lanka adapts to climate variability. The lessons learned in the HWT will be helpful for many water-scarce irrigation systems in the country, which bear high climate risks.

This study uses data from Remote Monitoring Systems (RMS) of 1131 pumps installed in the state of Chhattisgarh, under the state subsidy scheme, to understand the patterns of utilisation of typical solar pumps in India. As many as 674 pumps were installed in 2016-17 and the remaining during 2017-18.

This study examines Chhattisgarh’s solar pump programme - the Saur Sujala Yojana - to understand the profiles of its beneficiaries. Understanding who is benefiting from the government support would enable informed policymaking to improve the sustainability of solar pumps.

This study intends to help unlock the potential of two solarisation models - solarisation of rural electricity feeders and solarisation of individual grid-connected pumps - to power India’s irrigation needs.

Solar water pumps (SWPs) are a clean, modern irrigation solution that have the potential to improve livelihoods and food security for smallholder farmers across Sub-Saharan Africa. As small-scale SWPs become more affordable, this market is poised for growth.

Widespread adoption of efficient irrigation technologies, including drip irrigation, has been proposed as a means of limiting groundwater overexploitation, especially in the intensively farmed and water-stressed South Asia region.

Order of the National Green Tribunal (Eastern Zone Bench, Kolkata) in the matter of Krishan Chandra Santra & Others Vs Pollution Control Board, West Bengal & Others dated 17/06/2021.

The matter related to illegal construction and filling the construction material in a waterbody in Baruipara Paltagarh Panchayat which is connected to the Damodar Valley Corporation Canal. The applicants are farmers using the waterbody as a source of irrigation for their agricultural fields.

India’s mission to deploy some 2 million off-grid solar-powered irrigation pumps is making sluggish progress, with only one-eighth of the target achieved so far, according to a new report from the Institute for Energy Economics and Financial Analysis (IEEFA) which urges the central and state governments to remove bottlenecks in the installation
