About Us

Even if India were to achieve its full irrigation potential, approximately half of the cultivable area of 142 million hectares will still remain largely dependent on rainfall. It is also estimated that, by 2040, of an expected population of 1.5 billion, 500 million will live in rain-fed areas. In India, ensuring sustainability of rain-fed agriculture is therefore critical, more so in the scenario of climate change and the vulnerability of populations living in these areas.

Green revolution made the country self-sufficient in food but it bypassed the dryland areas, which have become the hot spots of poverty, hunger, malnutrition, water scarcity and land degradation.
