Its an innovation of Practical Action by the way of Nazmul Chowdhury (2005 at Disappearing Lands Project Gaibandha 2004-2009, funded by BLF, UK). The innovation has hugely funded by DFID to the cause of extreme poverty "Pathways From Poverty" since 2009-2016 for its scaling up in NW Bangladesh and very recently by the project "Pumpkins against Poverty" 2016-2018. Since 2014 the innovation has greatly assisted by Securing Water for Food (SWFF, Round-1, Funded by USAID, SIAD, Govt. of NL and Science & Technology SA) for its commercialization, focusing water efficiency and food production.
