Expected emission reduction from our programme (10-year Period)
Pumping and draining the rice fields requires labor which creates jobs. Above that, AWD also helps promote the vitality of the soil which directly impacts the farms earning potential.
Continuously flooded fields lead to stagnation of the water. Stagnant water promotes mosquito breeding which can lead to an outbreak of malaria, dengue, etc. AWD significantly reduces the chances of this outbreak, enhancing lives.
