On Friday we visited a climatic monitoring project and the sites of two other completed DWC funded projects before returning to Udaipur. As revealed in all projects so far, the farmers who are involved, double their incomes, learn new agricultural practices and become self-sufficient in only 3+ years. There is an oasis on the up-valley side of each water catchment wall, recharged wells and a much deeper understanding by self-help farmers of how climate and groundwater affect their agricultural production.
Next we are off to visit a very small village and have tea with the residents.
