Abstract

In most dryland regions, lack of technological progress and increasing population pressure are taking heavy toll on the productive natural resource base. Water scarcity, land degradation along with other technological and socioeconomic constraints are leading to lower productivity and income. Depletion of the resource base diminishes the capabilities of poor farmers to earn more and increases their vulnerabilities to drought and other natural disasters. For such areas, government of India and several other organizations and agencies have adopted integrated watershed management for improving the livelihoods of the community and conserving natural resources. Recently completed Comprehensive Assessment (CA) of the impacts of watershed program in India undertaken by the ICRISATled consortium showed that the watersheds are silently revolutionalising the dryland areas in the country and can become growth engine of sustainable and inclusive development. The Government of India released the New Common Guidelines for enhancing growth engine of sustainable development of rainfed areas by improving the performance of 65% of the watershed projects, which performed below average.
