Our key strategies

Project Rajasthan 2 builds on the success of Rajasthan 1 to enhance water security and address fluoride contamination across 350 villages in the Sirohi and Pali districts, spanning seven blocks. The initiative involves targeted interventions, including the empowerment of village water and sanitation committees and the execution of Social Art for Behaviour Change (SABC) campaigns focused on fostering behaviours crucial for water security and mitigating fluoride-related risks.

Additionally, the project establishes a state-level partnership with the government to provide technical assistance to ten selected districts. This collaboration focuses on bolstering the capabilities of Implementation Support Agencies in ensuring operation and maintenance and promoting water security measures for the sustainability of drinking water schemes in alignment with the objectives of the Jal Jeevan Mission.

Implemented amid the challenges posed by climate change, the project seeks to foster the adoption of key water behaviours, specifically those related to fluoride mitigation and water security, within the priority groups in the project areas. Furthermore, the initiative aims to enhance access to water-efficient practices and technologies in agriculture, contributing to broader sustainability and climate resilience efforts.
