The study area is part of the northern fringe of the Thar desert on the southern Haryana/Rajasthan border. Until 30 years ago, this region was considered only marginally. productive agriculturally and maintained a small scattered population. Irrigated agriculture has trickled into the region. Along with it, substantial growth in the form of spontaneous population in—migration and new economic opportunities has occurred.
