Center for Science & Environment: Paani Yatra (Water Pilgrimage)

Paani yatra is a journey to rediscover water. It is a trip that takes the yatris to villages where local communities have harvested rainwater¦and used it wisely. And they have succeeded in achieving a dramatic revival of local ecology and economy. Paani yatra is all about getting to know these individuals and organisation who are driven by their innate zeal to gain Jal Swaraj (water self-reliance). It is about taking an on-the-ground look at their successful initiatives. In other words, paani yatra offters a unique opportunity to attain water literacy.

You can join the tour by paying the following subsidised rates:

  • Rs 3,500 for farmers, grassroot functionaries, Indian NGOs and
  • Rs 8,500 for participants from donor agencies, corporate houses
    and consultants.
The payment could be made either through cheque or demand draft in
favour of the Centre for Science and Environment.
