Following are the major problems identified on the base of existing secondary research data comprising of rigorous Literature Review 1. 2. 3. Over exploitation of Ground Water Agricultural issues: Low agricultural productivity Social Issues: The Caste Structure Gender gap in education IMR and MMR Other Issues: Absence of railway network


The low productivity in agricultural sector The importance of the issue should be measured accordingly: The number of people it affects. Degree of damage that it can do to the development of people and district.

Causes for low productivity 1. 2. Water Scarcity Soil Problems Low water retention capacity Salinity Current farming patterns Inappropriate selection of seed variety

3. 4.

The effects of the low productivity in agricultural sector: Forceful Migration Low income (Poverty) Debt burden Malnutrition Health Issues Illness Farmer suicides Effects the childrens education Social issues

Breaking away from traditional system. Introduction of species which are not suitable for region. Species require high amount of water. Fertilizer intensive farming.

Networking with the agencies like government dept.'s, agriculture universities , KVK ( krishi vigyan Kendra), Local NGOs other funding agencies.
Capacitate the community about the knowledge about dealing with the issue of soil, water scarcity and using of appropriate seeds which consumes low water.

Increase in the agri-productivity and thus in turn HH income It would also lead to distress migration. Increased alternative livelihood opportunities for the people.

More employment generation to increase the livelihood opportunities Reduce the migration and increases the overall economy of the district.

The intervention activities which are mentioned below are to be started on pilot basis in Malpura, one of the 7 tehsils of Tonk which has a very low ground water availability. Networking with all resource based organizations:
Water shed management Drip irrigation Recycling of waste water/ Waste water management

We will try to collaborate with the agencies to identify the soli conditions by a field research and try to introduce an appropriate species which requires less water Capacitate people by increasing the knowledge

Connect with government for water shed management. Approach agriculture university , KVK ( krishi vigyan Kendra) for drip irrigation Talk to NREGA people about recycling We will try to collaborate with the agencies to identify the soil conditions by a field research and try to introduce an appropriate species which gives more produce by consuming less water. Capacitate the community about the knowledge about dealing with the issue of water scarcity.
