Abstract:

The community plays a key role in defining and organizing aspects of all the required works for their village in the watershed program. The position in the Entry Point Activities is evident in the implementation of works that were taken up in watershed project area. In Grama Sabha, all the entry point activities were identified through consultation with the village's public and they ensure that all categories of communities have participated such as SC, ST, and women’s groups and so on. The Grama Sabha and watershed committee facilitated the initiation of entry point activities (EPAs) throughout the process. The EPAs have been identified based on the need and priority in the villages which takes care of interest of community. In preparatory phase, Entry Point Activities towards community oriented works like animal health camps, trevices, water purification plants, solar street plants, cattle drinking troughs have been identified and taken up as per the need in micro watershed villages in the first year to introduce watershed concepts into community using 4% project funds. When they were involved in all steps, the community was able to maintain ownership of the entry point activities.
