Watershed Management & Planning

Watershed Management & Planning

Ratings: (0)|Views: 826 |Likes:
Watershed management is an emerging concept for the efficient use of rain run-off in the rural areas of India. The approach to watershed management is participatory in nature, people friendly, location specific, processed based and geared to cater to the problems and needs of the rural communities. The principle of watershed management is the proper management of all the precipitation by way of collection, storage and efficient utilisation of run-off water and use of groundwater. Watershed Management requires innovative planning along with input of engineering advancements to achieve its goals. The Engineering approach of 1980s in Watershed Management was a failure due to various reasons and hence, it paved the way for the evolution of integrated and participatory approaches. The paper also explains about the various engineering and indigenous technologies for preventing runoff of rainwater. Case studies of two major watershed programmes in state of Kerala are discussed and steps for better execution and improvement of watershed projects are suggested.
