Tools-Outputs

Muster Preparation

Muster sheet is the basic document of any work done in the watershed. Accounts are kept on the basis of Muster payments. Musters need to be summarised and analysed for preparation of further reports. Preparation of these reports manually requires lots of time and effort (Approximately 5-6 persondays are required for preparing a muster sheet of 100 labourers working for 2 weeks).

Expert System for Project Appraisal and Verification

This software checks the Net Plan once it is fed in. It checks cost per hectare, land class v/s land use, treatments in proposed land use, length, cross section and cost of treatments, number of plants to be planted, number of units proposed.  This reduces mistakes in planning and subsequently the time lag between proposal submission and sanctioning, since Gat/Survey number-wise scrutiny is done by this software.

Participatory Impact Monitoring (PIM)

The major objective of any watershed development project is to improve the natural resource base through conservation and management of resources so as to increase the productive potential of the resources and create livelihoods for the people depending on those resources. In order to achieve this a set of interventions are planned and implemented in consultation with the community, which generates certain outputs, outcomes and impacts.

Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation Systems in Watershed Development

The Resource book contains 9 tools related to monitoring of the products, processes and impacts of watershed development and one PM&E system as practiced in DANWADEP projects. The systems and tools are presented as case studies, as being operationalised and put into practice in different projects by the respective project actors.  The idea is to provide practical information on application of these tools and how these tools helped in managing efficiency and effectiveness  of project intervention by providing inputs for informed decision making.

Participatory Net Planning : A Practitioners Handbook

Participatory Net Planning (PNP) was born of the need to develop a practical, participation-promoting and inclusive methodology that is at the same time pedagogically and technically sound. The PNP methodology grew out of the Indo- German Watershed Development Program (IGWDP) in Maharashtra, India.
