This month's presentation will be a bit different but hopefully of interest to many of you.

Abstract

Farmers across many semi-arid parts of India rely on groundwater as a primary water source. As water becomes increasingly scarce, new methods for conserving and monitoring groundwater are required. MyWell is an app for tracking and visualising water and rainfall levels, aiming to engage farmers in new conservation methods.

In this presentation we will look at how MyWell was implemented and what it hopes to achieve. We will also discuss how IT and crowdsourcing can be used as an effective tool for development in low income countries.
