Watershed management is an ever-evolving technique involving the management of land, water, vegetation and other resources in a defined area for the holistic development. The watershed management concept has emerged as an important option for conservation and efficient utilization of available resources in India. In the early 1980s, the main focus was on soil conservation, whereas the focus shifted in 1990s to water conservation with the participatory approach. Currently, the main focus is on productivity enhancement, livelihood improvement and sustainable natural resources with community ownership.
The present book offers a collection of diverse studies on natural resources management for the benefit of society. Some of these studies include (i) effect of watershed management both on productivity and natural resources in climate change scenario; (ii) scope for additional productive potential through agro-ecosystem approach; (iii) role of integrated remote sensing and geographic information system for watershed monitoring and management; (iv) effectivity of bio-industrial watershed model for sustainable production; (v) agroforestry as an effective and potential tool for watershed management; (vi) utilization of geographic landscape to enhance income; (vii) trade-offs between livelihoods and natural resources; (viii) livestock-based diversification for sustainability; and (ix) engineering measures for the soil and water conservation for a wide range of ecosystems. This book addresses various issues across different disciplines as well as the incorporation of technological advancements, such as remote sensing, GIS, etc., into watershed management strategies.
