Innovation in Rural Engineering

The youth and community members of Mirphung Village in Dima Hasao district of Assam took up the challenge of constructing a minor irrigation canal in a sloppy hill. The transportation of construction materials from the village to the site was a very difficult task because of the sloppy terrain. The youth and the communities got together and came up with an innovative technique by transporting the materials through a bamboo track and wooden push carts and the further transporting down through rope way- made from locally available materials. The whole concept worked well and the minor irrigation canal was completed, which has further motivated the youth and communities to work together for the sustainable development of their village and community
