Internship programme for rural youth and students on groundwater management in Kutch district

Project Summary

Sustainable exploration, development and management of groundwater requires a specialized human resource base. However, there is a dearth of specialisation in this field. In this project, ACT created an internship to train people from local communities to understand geohydrology better and plan water management based on that. This programme helped them formulate strategies for management of groundwater on the basis of mapping and identification of aquifers with practical training in Mundra Taluka.


  1. A total of 15 para engineer graduates (Parabs) from three batches were trained.
  2. Development of a curriculum for a 45-day programme for parabs that includes 20 days course work that alternates with 25 days field work.
*Grant amount & beneficiary figures are as per actuals for completed projects.
