Participating Watershed Development Challenges for the Twenty-First Century

Book/book chapter

Written by John Farrington

Efforts have long been made in India to improve the management of major watersheds for ecological reasons - such as reducing the siltation of reservoirs. The key question addressed in this book is how far the approaches developed by NGOs to watershed management can be adopted (or adapted) by the public sector and applied on a wide scale, for, without such approaches, neither the ecological nor the livelihood benefits of watershed rehabilitation will be achieved.

John Farrington, Cathryn Turton and A. J. James
