Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 1993
This description of Jagdish Pradhan's work was prepared when Jagdish Pradhan was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 1993.
Jagdish Pradhan is helping peasant farmers in arid parts of India to reclaim traditional community water management systems and convert to organic farming while reversing more than two decades of growing "drought vulnerability" brought about, in part, by the introduction of "modern" agricultural methods and large-scale government irrigation schemes.
