Gujarat Ecology Commission has taken up the task of detailed planning and implementation of Ecological restoration of Banni and Pachachham Island of Kutch district to ensure fodder & water security and management through people's participation. One of the steps in this direction is the implementation of the Border Area Development Programme (BADP) of the Government of Gujarat. Under this project, activities such as soil-moisture conservation structures, rain water harvesting structures such as check-dams, nala plugging, etc. have been developed. Highlights of the project include; village pond and grass plot on 20 ha in Dhordo village, a check-dam and Salinity Bandh with 7 puccanalas and a grass godown in the Andho village, and a check dam in Ratodia and Motapaiya villages.
