This paper presents the potential of rainwater harvesting for drought-proofing India's villages. It urges members of parliament and state legislative assemblies to ensure that the governments take up rainwater harvesting on a large scale to improve local food security. There is enough rainwater in every village of India to meet drinking water needs and critical needs of agriculture. This strategy would complement India's current water management and agricultural strategy which aims at ensuring national food security rather than local food security.
