A watershed is an area of land comprising a common set of waterbodies such as streams, rivulets and overflowing ponds during the monsoon, that all drain into a single larger body of water, such as a large river, lake or an ocean.
Watershed development refers to the conservation, regeneration and the judicious use of all the natural resources, especially land, water, vegetation and animals, along with sustainable human development within the watershed.
Our approach to watershed development aims to unite vulnerable communities to regenerate degraded watersheds they live in. This includes a participatory approach undertaking soil and water conservation measures and integrating biodiversity concerns into watershed development efforts. The idea is to bring about natural resources regeneration and check over exploitation of the resources by the community.
We believe by mobilising communities to harvest rainwater and regenerate ecosystems, the quality of life and incomes can improve substantially.
