Through this project, a sustainable groundwater extraction system for agricultural practices will be established, and unpolluted groundwater aquifers will be protected in HDh.Nolhivaranfaru Island.

Findings from the technical assistance would support the country to promote sustainable groundwater extraction and management for agricultural practices in HDh.Nolhivaranfaru Island. In particular, by establishing and operating the infiltration gallery system, it is expected that unpolluted groundwater aquifers would be protected in the island. Moreover, the capacity and knowledge of farming communities in the island and agriculture-related stakeholders on sustainable agricultural practices and water use efficiency for agriculture would be strengthened. Based on findings from the project, it is also expected that point groundwater extraction methods currently used in other islands could be replaced with the proposed infiltration gallery system, which would contribute to increasing the capacity of climate resilience with sustainable water supply for agriculture in Maldives.
