Description

Migration is making a U-turn out of Bundelkhand region in India where a project is underway to double farmers’ incomes. Water harvesting efforts initiated earlier this year have helped families in a remote village return to their homes and farms after decades of migration. As a part of the Doubling Farmers Income Project in Poora Birdha village, an 800-meter long channel and havelis (tanks) were built to tap rains. Subsequently, farmers, who earlier had abandoned agriculture for want of water, returned to till their lands this kharif season.
