BAIF Rajasthan

  1. 1. Project Title:- Under Diversion Based Irrigation (DBI) in India themeSupported by: JDTTProject Period: 1/04/2010 to 31/03/2012Project Area: Rajasthan (Punaron ki Bastti undkha, Barmer)Implemented by: BAIF Development Research Foundation ( RRIDMA)
  2. 2. This proposed project is one of the four suggestedsub-themes (Tankas of Rajasthan) under the DBInote of the trust where small scale water storagestructure is required to be constructed to provideirrigation and also to meet the drinking waterneeds of the resource poor farmers in the aridzones of Rajastan by harvesting the rain waterrunoff
  3. 3.  Location District: Barmer (Rajasthan) Cluster: Barmer Name of the village: Punaron ki Basti, Undka
  4. 4. Project Area Profile (Barmer) Temperature: summer 47o and 5 o c in winter Rainfall: Average annual rainfall 277mm. Water: Water is very scanty and Salty Soil: sandy with negligible organic matter Vegetation : Spiny shrubs and hard grass. Major crops: Bajra, guar, moth, mung(only Kharif) Main tree : Khejari, Kumath, Rohida, Neem, Ber, Babul, Shrubs: Calotropis procera, Caparis decidua,Arani, Calligonam poligonodes, Murali, Burda, Loka, Pala Boradi Livestock:,sheep & goat Population is dominated over camel , donkey Cattle & buffalos Population Livelihood condition and human capital : Muslims, ,Meghwal, Rewari, Kumhar, Bheel, Jat, Nai, Teli and Suthar Economic activity : Livestock, Labour work, handicraft
  5. 5. Priority themes focused : Optimum tapping of water for drinking and irrigation purpose in desert areas Water use efficiency demonstration for small agri- horti plot in desert conditions Family based model testing for integrated water use for household, agriculture and livestock development under arid parts of India Community mobilization around water resource
  6. 6. PROBLEMS AFFECTING MARGINALIZED FAMILIESProblem Interlocked Major CausesCategory problemsCommuni Scarcity of Inadequate quantityties water Scarcity after brief monsoonStruggle resource Distant Water sources involving hardshipfor and lack of Lack of organized effortssurvival technology Lack of technology to harness Lack of awareness and resources rainfall Erosion of traditional skills and knowledge Poor water resource / irrigation facilities, limiting development of agriculture
  7. 7. PROJECT AIMS TO ADDRESS TWO MAIN ISSUES1} Severe scarcity of water for the purpose ofdrinking and irrigation2} Lack of awareness on optimum managementof available water resources
  8. 8. OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT Tapping the available water during rainy season Drinking water security for the resource poor family and their livestock. Improved irrigation and water use efficiency for second crop production Food security and generation of sustainable income for participant families Drudgery reduction of the women
  9. 9. MAIN INTERVENTIONS : Construction of low cost underground tankas with improvisation Demonstrating better collection of runoff (By cementing and shaping the small catchment surrounding tankas) collection and storage of roof top rain water into tankas revival and repairing of berries/kuis/ group wells for tapping subsurface water Family based demonstration on water use efficiency to devise integrated model for small plot irrigation for agri horti crops

  22. 22. At Family level: People got to know about crop diversification options by the introduction of selected variety of Fruit ,Vegetable, Cereal crops Yield of major field crops (Bajra, guar, moong, moth) has increased by the introduction of short duration and drought resistant varieties Area under irrigation increased through the cultivation of vegetable on the land of each benefited family after the construction of Rain Water Harvesting Structures.
  23. 23. At Family level: Duration of drinking water availability increased with Tanka which is storing around 30 thousand liters of water. Water harvesting structure (Tanka) ensured availability of potable drinking water Income has been increased due to commercial Vegetable Cultivation. Seasonal vegetables grown on the border of wadi Engagement of family labour in wadi activities
  24. 24. At Community Level: Increased Awareness about IAP among the benefited family through Training & Exposure program. Promoted Organic farming through the good Quality Compost and organic fertilizers
  25. 25. At Community Level: Fodder availability for small ruminants will be ensured by Ber plant The Tanka has become a source of drinking water at the doorstep. Drudgery especially for the women has reduced
  26. 26. Achievements: 130 farmers established wadi of 9676 plants Around 60 hectare unproductive land converted to protected orchards 130 poor family harvested around 39 Lac liters of water that save Rs. 6.5 lac 18 open well benefiting 82 family with unlimited water & around 60 hectare Dry land changed to irrigated land Around 30 hectare land of 130 farmers is using to vegetable cultivation as a result of taped rain water Total 83 hectare desert land is converted to irrigated land
