The Integrated Water Resources Management project aimed at establishing and replicating models of improved water management practices, institutionalising processes for community managed water resources and increasing access to entitlements in Madhya Pradesh, Bihar and Jharkhand, India. The project supported the setting up and development of the Jan Jal Jodo campaign (Water for people alliance).
The project was possible thanks to the financial support of the European Union and Viva con Agua and was implemented by our partners Parmarth (in Madhya Pradesh), SGVK (in Jharkhand) and GPSVS (in Bihar).
The Fight Hunger First Initiative is designed on the premise that, in the long term, poor people can only break out of this cycle if adequate welfare systems are in place and basic rights are fulfilled: such as, access to proper education, sufficient and adequate access to food and income, better health services and actual inclusion in the state generated welfare program. Only, then, can the new generation of disadvantaged groups look forward to a new and better future. And only then, can growth benefit the entire society.
