Introduction of the Area and Characteristics
The state of Rajasthan is located in the western part of the country and is bounded by Pakistan on the west, by Punjab, Haryana and Delhi in the north and by Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh on the east. The entire state is a natural resource deficient region with low rainfall, scattered vegetation, and fragile ecosystem and is devoid of perennial rivers. Rajasthan has a land area of 342,239 sq. km and has a human population of 56.47 million and livestock population of 54.34 million.
Cattle and other livestock are the most important source of livelihood after Agriculture in Rajasthan, especially for the poor and occupy an important role in the economy. Animal Husbandry contributes over 19 percent to the net state domestic product. Rajasthan has, in fact, the highest livestock population in India, contributing nearly 40% of wool production and10% of all milk production in the country.
The Western part of the state has a very fragile vegetation base putting a serious threat to survival strategy of the inhabitants. Availability of water for drinking as well as other purposes is another critical issue for both human and cattle populations. Scorching sun, hot and dry strong winds and the dominantly sandy landscape put human endurance and sustenance of life to a rigorous test. But even then it is the most populated desert in the world, where livestock rearing and agriculture and are major sources of livelihood. In recent past tremendous pressure on the land has resulted in extension of cultivation to the more fragile parts of sandy terrain and abused grazing land. Consequently more lands are becoming vulnerable to wind erosion and shifting sand dunes.
The geo-climatic conditions and the terrain is challenging in terms of mobility and living conditions. The outreach of government’s regular as well as emergency programs remains limited due to poor infrastructure and also because of traditional pattern of habitation where people live in scattered hamlets that are often distantly located from the main village.
In Western Rajasthan desert Arid eco-region of Rajasthan (N240 37’00” to N 300 10′ 48” and from E690 29′ 00″ to E760 05′ 33’’) covering an area of about 20.6mha constitutes 60.3% of the local geographical area of Rajasthan. The area experience extreme in temperature where maximum goes up to 49ºC during the months of May-June and minimum drops down to 2ºC in the winter.
Entire area is characterized by undulating sand dunes with gentle slopes. Twelve districts: Barmer, Bikaner, Churu, Ganganagar, Hanumangarh, Jaisalmer, Jalore, Jhunjhunu, Jodhpur, Nagaur, Pali and Sikar. These twelve districts account for 63.4 percent area of the hot arid realm of India including ten percent area each of Sirohi, Ajmer and Jaipur districts.
Jaisalmer district is one of the most backward districts in Western Rajasthan. There is high concentraton of schedule caste (SC) communites like Meghwals, Jogis, Sansi, Bhil etc and also other backward classes (OBC) like Suthar, Nai, Kumhar, Swami, darji, Sunar, Lohar, Jat, Muslims, Ranarajput, Bishnoi etc.
