Delivering additional water potential and farmer well-being

HUF's Programme Coverage

HUF's programmes operate across 12 states and 54 districts that represent India's varied ground water and rainfall conditions


The community-centric approach in our programmes is instrumental in delivering sustainable water security outcomes. These include effective surface water conservation efforts in vulnerable districts, improvement in ground water levels, behaviour change in water use practices for water intensive crops like paddy and wheat. Here are some stories of impact from our programmes...

Measuring Impact

mesuring impact

Building numeracy of water related outcomes is critical to activate large scale community involvement and measure programme outcomes. At HUF we measure indicators including the quantum of water potential created through conservation efforts, improvement in ground water levels, water saved through improved agricultural practices, benefits to farmers through yield and income improvement and effectiveness of community-led institutions on the governance of shared water assets. A robust protocol is adopted by partner NGOs to measure the outcomes of programmes.
