Developing irrigation system Installing efficient irrigation system
The [Gonda Gramodaya Project], a project of the Gonda Gramodaya Prakalp Research Institute (Uttar Pradesh, India), was able to construct 30,000 tube-wells in two years with the assistance of Peoples' Action for Development in India (PADI). Out of a total of 2,814 villages, 2,008 were covered by this minor irrigation and development programme. Diesel or electrical pumpsets were installed on the tube-wells. The invention of a bullock-driven pump by a staff member was one of the highlights of this project. The increase in crop yield as a result of irrigation was 35 percent.
The Encyclopedia of World Problems and Human Potential is a unique, experimental research work of the Union of International Associations. It is currently published as a searchable online platform with profiles of world problems, action strategies, and human values that are interlinked in novel and innovative ways. These connections are based on a range of relationships such as broader and narrower scope, aggravation, relatedness and more. By concentrating on these links and relationships, the Encyclopedia is uniquely positioned to bring focus to the complex and expansive sphere of global issues and their interconnected nature.
The initial content for the Encyclopedia was seeded from UIA’s Yearbook of International Organizations. UIA’s decades of collected data on the enormous variety of association life provided a broad initial perspective on the myriad problems of humanity. Recognizing that international associations are generally confronting world problems and developing action strategies based on particular values, the initial content was based on the descriptions, aims, titles and profiles of international associations.
Non-profit, apolitical, independent, and non-governmental in nature, the UIA has been a pioneer in the research, monitoring and provision of information on international organizations, international associations and their global challenges since 1907.
