    Description

    India's present food requirements of 220 million tonnes will likely increase to 340 million tonnes in 20 years. Expansion in the agriculture sector to meet these demands can be achieved only by devoting greater attention to restoring watershed lands previously degraded by excessive soil erosion to higher productivity and more efficiently utilizing the country's water resources. This challenge is intimately related to the proper management of land, water, and vegetation resources. Management of water and, more comprehensively, watershed resources is paramount to meeting this challenge. Water and watershed management in India are reviewed in this paper within the context of relevant policy issues and priority areas for future research endeavors.
