Utilizing Floodwaters for Recharging Depleted Aquifers and Sustaining Irrigation
Pragmatic, cost-effective, socially inclusive and scalable solutions that reduce risks from recurrent cycles of floods and
droughts would greatly benefit emerging economies. One promising approach known as Underground Transfer of Floods
for Irrigation (UTFI) involves recharging depleted aquifers with seasonal high flows to provide additional groundwater
for irrigated agriculture during dry periods, while also mitigating floods. It has been identified that there is potential for
implementing the UTFI approach across large parts of South Asia.
