Migration is an unending story in the lives of people from the drought hit regions like Kurnool of Rayalaseema in Andhra Pradesh. There are continuous efforts from the government to mitigate migration through various policy interventions and watershed development programme is one among them. Though watershed programme initially focused on soil and water conservation activities, later it added other aspects of rural development such as biological and socio-economic based activities. These were addressed through holistic approach where small and marginal famers given priority in the soil and water conservation activities, special provisions provided in the watershed activities for socially backward sections of the society such as SC/STs, and also given priority in the livelihood’s improvement activities. Kurnool district is one of the districts showed results towards reduction in migration.
