Water and Mgnrega: Transforming India

Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) has become much more than a mere wage generating scheme. By having water conservation at its core, it is transforming India’s rural landscape, and changing the lives of the country’s poor for the better.

Fifteen years after MGNREGA was first implemented, Down to Earth travels across 16 districts in 15 states in the pandemic-scarred country to bring back stories of revival, resurrection and hope. Stories reaffirming that life goes on even in difficult times—and, as always, water is life.

Join us to celebrate the World Water Day.
