In West Bengal, India, 70% of the population depends on agriculture for their livelihood. The region receives plenty of water, but only during the rainy season — July-September. Small farmers can generally cultivate during those months only.

This 3-minutes animation illustrates the impacts of rainwater harvesting during the rainy season for use during the dry season on farmers’ livelihood, food security and poverty reduction.

It shows where to invest, because 100 Rupees invested for the construction of a privately-owned pond can generate a return of 300 Rupees.

Animation produced by Kantfish.com Production with an original soundtrack by DDGProject.com for FAO in the framework of the AGWATER Solutions project.
