Groundwater Monitoring, Recharge, Planning and Sustainable Use: Village Level Participatory Approaches and Tools
Groundwater plays a critical role in India’s economy and livelihood of rural communities. It supplies 65% of water needs for agriculture and over 85% of water for drinking in rural and urban communities. Groundwater helped India in the Green revolution, but it also led to a ‘silent revolution’ with the total number of dugwells and borewells growing phenomenally, from a few million in 1960s to 30 million now. The consequence of this is that groundwater pumping is far in excess of the annual rainfall recharge, and as result the resource is under a serious threat now.
