    Description

    Addressing the problems associated with watersheds in both countries is the aim of this paper as well as assessing the respective watershed policies. Attention has been drawn to specific economic, environmental and sociocultural considerations in the recent past. An interesting feature of the most recent policy developments is the tendency to follow a balanced approach to water resource development in either situation. In Australia, it is envisaged to follow a co-ordinated and sustainable use and management of land water, and vegetation resources on a water catchment basis. In Sri Lanka however, after a prolonged lull in policy approaches it is only beginning to prepare the framework towards a bearable watershed resource.
