Monitoring and managing groundwater through people participation
In this webinar, we share experiences from the MARVI project, Managing Aquifer Recharge and Sustaining Groundwater Use through Village-level Intervention, particularly how villagers can be transformed into local groundwater champions through training and capacity building and empowering them to develop their own solutions for groundwater sustainability. One of the significant achievements in this project was the development and implementation of MyWell App to facilitate groundwater and rainfall data collections and visualisation. We discuss how MyWell evolved and what the future holds for it to share data and make groundwater use and sharing decisions at the village level. We also discuss how the village level MARVI approach can be extended in other parts of India and beyond.
