Abstract

Participatory integrated watershed management programme approach demollstrated on a 370 ha modei watershed at Fakot in Tehri Garhwal district of Uttaranchal State resulted a change in land use pattern in favour of environmental improvement. Consequently, runoff and soil loss from the watershed has decreased and agricultural output has increased significantly. The present study reveals that environmental payoff and economic returns from watershed management project at Fakot are attractive to lead further sustainable development in the area.
