Abstract:

For successful watershed management and effective up-scaling of best practices, this study recommends the following: (i) develop technologies that are suitable for a specific watershed and smallholder farmers. Emphasis should be given to technologies that improve conservation of the resource base, (ii) improve surface and subsurface water management to increase water productivity; (iii) develop institutions and mechanisms that improve partnerships among stakeholders; (iv) devise mechanisms that ensure fair and equitable division of costs and benefits, especially between upstream and downstream communities; (v) ensure community participation with adequate technical and financial support; (vi) link physical and biological conservation activities with IGAs and livelihood improvement activities; (vii) improve access to markets. There are cases where high-value commodities are produced under watershed management, but access to markets and post-harvest management technologies is limited. The majority of the high-value commodities are usually perishable, irrigated vegetables. Therefore, there is a need for effective integration of production, marketing and agro-processing to obtain the maximum benefits from the value chain;
