Integrated Land Resource management through Natural Waterhole Conservation and Upscale Organic Farming in Bara
Integrated Land Resource management through Natural Waterhole Conservation and Upscale Organic Farming in Bara
Due to lack of irrigation facilities in lowland Terai, farmers are harvesting groud waters and haphazardly using chemical fertilisers and pesticides in agriculture field. On the other hand, unmanaged and unused water -holes are found scattered in the Terai. And if managed properly, these waterholes can provide perpetual water source for both irrigation and drinking water. By integrating fish farming, duck farming and organic vegetable farming would not only contribute to sustainable land management but also contribute to improving livelihood of the local people.

The project aimed to demonstrate by managing two water-holes for irrigation and initiate livelihood opportunities such as duck farming, fish farming and organic vegetable farming.
