Watershed Organisation Trust is pleased to share a case study of 'Sattechiwadi' included as one of the best practices published in the Ministry of Environment and Forest, GOI National Report 2012 submitted to UNCCD. It gives an account of the activities implemented in Sattechiwadi (a hamlet of Hivargaon) Maharashtra and how specific land degradation problems were addressed.
The land of Kaluchi Thakarwadi has gone from desert to replenished watershed. It is no longer a tragedy of inhospitable climate and unfortunate circumstances. It is a story of how a community came together, challenged the elements and changed their destiny.
The story of the Watershed Development process was also published in LEISA.
