Abstract : In India, more than 70% of people in rural areas depend on agriculture and thus depend on large quantities of water for irrigation purposes. Sustainable irrigation methods are required to reduce the wastage of water and effectively use it. Drip irrigation method is an effective way to reduce the water usage significantly without losing crop yield. This study conducted in Gudipadu Cheruvu Village was focused on the challenges faced by the people due to water scarcity. Challenges faced by the people were analysed using participatory rural appraisal approach and human-centred design methods. Also, these approaches helped to design and derive an effective method to overcome the water scarcity issues prevalent in the village.
