Decentralised Surface Water Harvesting Structure as a Viable Irrigation Model: The “Bhagirath Krishak Abhiyan”  in  Dewas district of Madhya Pradesh brings in a new dawn in the history of modern India by way of bringing in a movement to restore rainwater by creating more than six thousand farm ponds in Dewas district built by the people using own resources. The farm pond is a traditional AWM solution in the region. The solution which started in Dewas district is already being implemented in many other districts as well and has demonstrated long-term sustainability and added-value.
