4. Desert Rajasthan: Design opportunities for Water

4. Desert Rajasthan: Design opportunities for Water
Rajasthan is a desert state with a huge and recognized water scarcity problem and the team addressed the issues at hand with all the seriousness that it deserved. The range of illustrations and the levels of strategies that they proposed were stratified at the individual level, the community level, the State governance level and at the National policy levels, all well integrated and expressed in their group presentation to the class. The wall chart was huge and very detailed in their illustration of each of the solutions that were offered. The very interesting offering was the creation of a communications strategy that used new institutional infrastructure that could bring interested villages and children together so that the various issues of water could be addressed by the people in a participatory mode. The group presentation was rich and extremely expressive.
