Establishment of Demand-Driven Sustainable Improved Watermill Cluster in the State of Uttarakhand, India

This project aims to improve the traditional water mills by replacing wooden equipment in order to make them more efficient and to demonstrate the importance of the technology in the mountainous region. Furthermore, the supply and demand gap of products (such as grains) processed by the water mills could be closed by efficient production and effective marketing.
