What roads are to us, canals are to the people of Kuttanad. To tackle the invasive growth of water hyacinth in the backwaters of Edathua panchayat, our team in Kerala motivated the locals towards the cleaning of a 300mx12m stretch of canal. With the water hyacinth removed, adequate water now reaches the paddy fields, apart from being available for domestic use. The clear canal has also enabled people to freely move about in their canoes. In Kuttanad region of Alleppey, Goonj is extensively working towards the cleaning of backwaters to ensure the unhindered flow of rainwater and to prevent the impact of impending waterlogging during the monsoon.
