Broad based community institutions called Jal Sabhas (water user associations) have been facilitated in villages to manage water resources, supporting them to develop integrated micro plans and micro projects on water harvesting and conservation, facilitating development of equitable and efficient water management systems. Stakeholders have been sensitized through regular training for inclusion of women and marginalised groups in village institutions. As a part of institution building and for sustainability, a development fund or Jal Kosh has been set up in each Jal Sabha that raises resources from the community, that are used for maintenance of water harvesting structures.
