Sustainable rural development by rural communities

Building capacities of rural communities for their active & meaningful participation in self governance processes for an inclusive & good governance

Villages in the districts of Rewari, Mohindergarh, Jhajjhar in Southern Haryana and Alwar, Churu, Bikaner in Northern Rajasthan in north west India

Sampada Prakritik - Natural Resources

Effective and sustainable natural resource management for people’s sustenance

Empowerment of village communities for efficient management of
water, soil, vegetation, fodder & fuel

Since 1980 SCRIA has been empowering the village communities for effective and sustainable natural resource management. For this purpose capacity building & infrastructure development initiatives are facilitated with active participation of all stakeholders especially women. Campaigns, trainings & technology demonstrations are regularly organized.

Promote water harvesting & prudent usage practices

Harvesting rainwater for drinking & other purposes is being promoted by the SCRIA since 1983. We are intensively working on revival of traditional water harvesting - storage structures and community management practices.

SCRIA facilitates repair - renovation of village ponds known as “Talai” or “Johad” and promotes covered traditional rainwater harvesting structures with their own structured catchment surface called “Tankaas”. On a need basis technical & financial assistance is provided to communities.

Rainwater Water Harvesting

Soil conservation, improved dry land agricultural practices, plantation & regeneration

SCRIA promotes traditional & modern organic based agricultural practices. In desert areas we are involved in reviving traditional sand dune slope bunding practice called Kanabundi, which helps in stabilizing sand dunes and also promotes moisture based farming. We also promote & facilitate farm bunding, organic composting, seed treatment, vegetable & fodder cultivation, bio pesticides, agro forestry and pastureland development.
Waste water management & environmental sanitation
Recharging ground water, recycling waste water, composting bio degradable waste and promotion of lavatory
Alternate Energy
With the ever-burgeoning population the energy crisis of rural India is far from being resolved. To effectively address the issue of energy crisis SCRIA since 1984 is promoting & popularizing non - conventional energy sources like biogas plants to provide clean, healthy, environmentally friendly fuel and nitrogen rich organic manure to the people. For this financial assistance in the form of loans is facilitated, technical input is provided for the construction of biogas plants, repairs are carried out on a need basis and wherever possible biogas plants are connected with septic tanks. Over the years SCRIA has facilitated construction of more than 500 plants.

Khori Model Biogas System

In order to overcome the problems of traditional biogas systems, such as construction, maintenance, dependence on cattle dung, high water requirement and intensive labor input for daily operation, SCRIA undertook an experiment with the aim to evolve an improved biogas system with simple pit design, use of agricultural waste as feed material and batch feeding to reduce daily labor input. The experimental project delivered some very encouraging results. This biogas system is called Khori Model Biogas System.
