The NITI Aayog recently commended the impact of community best practices for watershed management, in Jhansi, Uttar Pradesh, India. “Local community in the water scarce Parasai-Sindh region of Jhansi, #UttarPradesh increased groundwater level by 2-5 meters & made 100 acres of land cultivable by constructing check dams, farm ponds and renovating existing structures in 8 locations. #BestWaterPractices” – said a recent Facebook post from NITI Aayog’s handle.
