On May 1, 2020, WOTR brought together a diverse range of stakeholders including policy makers, government officials, researchers, corporate donor representatives, and development practitioners for a half-day virtual workshop in order to reach a consensus on Ecosystem-based Adaptation (EbA) for building resilience to COVID-19 in rural Maharashtra.
Water Budgeting: A tool for improving water governance at local level
While working in rural India for more than 25 years, WOTR found the Water Budgeting tool to be very powerful, if implemented by taking into account the water stewardship approach. This tool is useful to motivate communities to safeguard water availability. It also helps the community members to take informed decisions about water use and cropping practices.
