Groundwater Scarcity, has set Indian Villages on a Perilous Course.
JaiHanuman Rural Volunteers and Students have planted 6000 trees and are motivated to Plant 30000 trees in 3 Villages in the Chandwad Taluka. Namely Hirapur, Urdhul and Dahiwad Villages.
A new study published in Nature Scientific Reports shows that moderate tree cover can increase groundwater recharge, and that tree planting and various tree management options can improve groundwater resources.
This new study evaluates the conditions that are required for trees to benefit groundwater and suggests there is potential for widespread tree establishment in the seasonally dry tropics that could provide “increased benefits for hundreds of millions of people”.
