See what others have to say about WBADMI Project.
“Results indicate that community involvement in the form of WUAs and agricultural support services will definitely add critical value towards similar minor irrigations schemes of the government”
“The Project has demonstrated appropriate models for different agro-climatic regions.Use of GIS technology in planning, implementation & impact assessment and Watershed based approach for promotion of different project activities. I have visited many projects around the world and never came across any such integrated & quality work. These works need to be shared across so that others can also be benefited.”
