Climate Action


Water plays a significant role in increasing yield from the land. Non-availability of timely and adequate water for irrigation is a serious constraint in achieving higher productivity & profitability in farming. The farming community in our geographies especially in the Lalgudi taluk, district Trichy of Tamil Nadu and in Mylavaram Mandal, district Kadapa of Andhra Pradesh, Ramdurg Taluk, district Belgaum of Karnataka face similar water challenges.

Dalmia Bharat Foundation is addressing the water issue by implementing integrated watershed development projects in joint collaboration with National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD). The projects at both the locations spread over a span of 5 years.
