This year’s World Water Day theme is Water and Peace. The villagers of nine river basins spread across Dholpur and Karauli districts (Rajasthan) invite the water community to celebrate World Water Day with them. The People's Peace and Water Summit is organised by the villagers of Dholpur and Karauli (Rajasthan) with Peoples of the World Commission on Drought and Flood (PWCDF) and the NGO Tarun Bharat Sangh and Jal Biradari. It aims to be a testament to the remarkable journey of a region that once grappled with violence induced by water stress and has now embraced peace through decentralized water retention and natural agriculture. The community's commitment to harmonizing with nature has led to extraordinary changes, primarily by harnessing the seasonal monsoons to rehydrate the earth. Thousands of wells have been recharged and several rivers have been revived.
