In line with the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (SDGs) 2030, India, too, has set its sustainability goals and solemnly pledged for a safer environment. To achieve these goals, actions at the grassroots level is of crucial importance. Humana People to People India’s (HPPI) Green Action Projects aim to facilitate environmental awareness and education, while also developing and strengthening environment-friendly solutions to the challenges of contemporary society.

One of the initiatives implemented by HPPI is the More Crop per Drop’ project in Jodhpur, Rajasthan under the organisation’s overarching Green Action initiatives. The project commenced in November 2017 and is supported by the Municipality of Vienna, Austria and Humana Austria. The project aims at training 300 farmers in sustainable cultivation practices including water & soil conservation and management, leading to enhanced food security. The women are also trained in setting up homestead gardens for vegetable and fruit cultivation and taught about nutrition-rich cooking for prevention of diseases.

During recent project visits, the farmers shared their experiences of how initially they were sceptical of building a water pond in their fields or to start a kitchen garden. Now, however, their perception has changed completely. Now when there is no rain, the farmers use the water from the pond to irrigate their plants. The farmers also added that they indeed had obtained “more crop per drop” during the 15 months they participated in the project. Empowered through training provided by the project, with assistance from Central Arid Zone Research Institute (CAZRI) and Krishi Vigyan Kendras (KVK), the farmers had applied improved cultivation practices including efficient water usage.

The women shared the benefits of the project interventions and how the Nutritional Food Training has contributed towards increasing their knowledge on several relevant issues.

Several farmers spoke of the savings they are making in their day-to-day life by not having to go to a market to buy vegetables and enjoying their own healthy, organic vegetables. The farmers said that they have also learned about a new technology focusing on step-by-step farming and were introduced to new varieties of seeds, which are more productive.

The project has been making significant progress in the lives of the farmers and they hope for the continuation of the project in the near future. The success of the project goes a long way in helping us get closer to achieve environmental sustainability.
