Farm Ponds : solution or a new problem?

-Eshwer Kale

The construction of farm pond is being portrayed as a miracle strategy by the state as well as by the popular media but, the manner of its implementation and practice in arid and semi-arid regions of Maharashtra needs immediate attention. WOTR’s recent commentary  published in the Economic and Political Weekly (EPW)  and the Vanrai special edition (Marathi) highlights the need for regulating the overall farm pond practices. It also proposes different strategies as corrective measures to the ongoing implementation of these structures.
