Global Activism: Jal Bhagirathi Foundation and water security

Worldview took Global Activism on the road to India! And we continue our visit to India’s Rajasthan State, the world’s most densely populated desert region, with the first of a two-part conversation with Jal Bhagirathi Foundation. It’s an NGO focused on water security. Parikshit singh Tomar of Jal Bhagirathi, will show us their retention basin where they store rainwater. The land reserve has developed into a beautiful ecosystem. Next week, Parikshit will take us to a remote rural village that was revolutionized by Jal Bhagirathi projects.
