Therefore, the poverty alleviation in semi-arid regions requires a greater understanding of the interactions of agriculture and allied enterprises and their implications for the household economy. This paper synthesizes the available evidence on agriculture and allied enterprises in watershed development areas and how policy should address the issue to balance between agriculture and micro- enterprises promoted by watershed development programs
