ICRISAT is involved in developing watershed technologies for more than three decades. Based on the learnings, ICRISAT-led consortium comprising of national agricultural research systems (NARSs) such as Central Research Institute for Dryland Agriculture (CRIDA), National Remote Sensing Agency (NRSA), Indian Institute of Soil Science (IISS), state agricultural universities (SAUs), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), state government of Andhra Pradesh, Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, advanced research institutes (ARIs) such as Michigan State University and University of Georgia, farmer organizations and national governments of India, Thailand, China and Vietnam have developed a holistic farmer-centric consortium model for watershed management. This model based on the principles of 4Cs: convergence, collective action, consortium and co-operation has shown good impact on field – in terms of enhanced community participation, increased crop productivity, incomes for the farmers, improved greenery and water availability, reduced soil loss and runoff, capacity building and building of social capital in the target watersheds.
