Watershed Development Program….. Introduction • Water is biggest crisis we are facing today in terms of severity and its spread. • Out of 328 million hectares of total land 175 million hectares is declared as waste lands. • Watershed treatment in most of the lands thus has to be highest priority. • Every third person in the country is badly affected by this crisis. • C.C.T. has proven that waste land can be transformed into valuable Natural capital at very low cost within short time and with guaranteed results.
Watershed Development Program….. • Out of the waste land most of the area can be converted into valuable and bountiful Natural capital to overcome the water crisis. • C.C.T. is based on knowledge input as against costly inputs in conventional techniques of watershed development. • C.C.T. is applicable to diverse Agro Climatic zones for watershed development; soil conservation and forestation.
Watershed Development Program….. Benefits of C.C.T. • Soil loss becomes nil. • No surface run off. • Barren area gets permanent biomass cover and soil is protected. • Good soil moisture and good ground water available in wells and tanks. • Clean water for drinking. • Evaporation losses are negligible as compare to Tanks and Dams. • Stops migration to cities in search of livelihood.
