Watershed Ecology and the Environment (WEE) is an international multidisciplinary journal publishing original research papers, reviews, and short communications, which improve our knowledge of shifts and adaptations of resources, biodiversity, ecological functions, hydrological and environmental changes under various human disturbance pressures (such as urbanization) and changing climate. This impact assessment report is about Madhya Pradesh Projects under evaluation. The main objective of this evaluation is to find the impacts of watershed implementation on certain key indicators on biophysical aspects, production related components and socio economic issues. The impacts were assessed at the watershed and household level. development had little impact on dry areas. Therefore, it is imperative to manage and conserve water and soil resources in order to enhance productivity and improve the well being of people (Wani et al. a,). In this context, watershed development programs have become engines of development especially to reduce poverty. A study of a watershed development model from differing physical and socio-economic framework reveals the variability in the nature and degrees of impacts of watershed development on drinking water regimes from various agro-climatic regimes of India.

complete the watershed survey and the associated issue of survey bias, the data gained from the 6 Only the Arkansas River component of this basin is considered within the western focus of this report. Case Study Of-Watershed Development. Introduction: This case study intents to study the effects and impacts on people and their lifestyle after HUVF NABARD watershed intervention at Gunderi Kavalu. The subject to be studied is a family which has undertaken watershed developments related work in their farm and have had a time window to. can prevent community water shortages, poor water quality, flooding and erosion. The expense of undertaking watershed management is far less than the cost of future remediation. For development of agriculture and drinking water resource the basic elements required are land and water. Because of tremendous rise in population. for the elucidation of a theory of sustainable development, which must have an interdisciplinary nature. Drawing on economic, ecological, and social perspectives, we can identify some of the main themes that are integral to the construction of a new paradigm: * Economic sustainability requires that the different kinds of capital.

A large watershed can be managed in plain valley areas or where forest or pasture development is the main objective. In hilly areas or where intensive agriculture development is planned, the size of watershed relatively preferred is small. Keywords: Watershed, consortium, community, water, livelihood. Introduction.

In: Stringer, Christina E.; Krauss, Ken W.; Latimer, James S., eds. Headwaters to estuaries: advances in watershed science and management -Proceedings of the Fifth Interagency Conference on Research in . Implementation of watershed at small scale level, through community participation would enhance biodiversity, increase soil fertility, reduce soil loss and also contribute to climate change mitigation. In view of this, this paper assesses the impact of community based watershed management on land use/cover change at Elemo micro watershed.
