Abstract:

Watershed development programme has been aimed at active involvement of the people in all the stages in the implementation process including fund utilization. The study therefore attempted to assess the extent of development of the watershed women. A sample of 192 watershed women involved in the programme were randomly selected from 24 watersheds covering two blocks each in Sundargarh and Keonjhar districts of Odisha. The findings revealed that the respondents were agreed for the developments in farm activities and technological backstopping in comparison to infrastructural, social and economic developments. Poor responses received on resource generation for post project activities, access to credit facilities, increase in soil fertility, water resources as well as repair, restoration and upgradation of existing common properties, permanency in information flow, increase in decision making capacity, improvement in overall living condition and consciousness for eco-friendly technology indicate that the respondents were not actively involved in the implementation process. The District Advisory Committee as the nodal officer at the district level have to closely monitor all the activities and involve watershed women in all the decision making process along with implement various income generating activities to empower them with income and employment generation.
