3.4       Impact of interventions through studies, impact assessments and Evaluations ::

        The Engineering Staff College of India had conducted evaluation and impact studies in watershed villages in the Medak district in the month of January & February,2005.  Some of their findings are mentioned below.

§               All works are executed in watershed villages as per specification and mostly concerned with Norms.

§               The Villagers are well aware about the concept of watershed programme and importance of Soil, Water, Trees treatment.

§               Availability of water both for irrigation and drinking water purpose is normal, though deficit rainfall is observed since last five years

§               Cultivable area has increased both in Khariff and Rabbi due to increase in Soil Moisture.

§               Crop yields are increased in I.D. crops and Rabbi crops in bunded area by 20% to 25% and also due to the influence of activities taken up like Check dams and Percolation Tanks.

§               Rejunovation of bore wells and open wells are observed in the influence zones of watershed activities.

§               Increasing wage employment and labour rates has halted traditional migration of labour.

§               The overall cropped area and yields per Ha are increased

§               Fodder availability and milk yield is increased in watershed villages due to vegetation and improved green cover.

§               The average 0.60 Mt raise of ground water table in some of the watershed villages in Zahirabad block attributed to impact of watershed programme activities.

§               Irrigated area is stabilized due to the increase in Ground Water attributed to watershed interventions

§               Additional area brought under cultivation due to effective implementation of soil Moisture activities and effective Ridge to valley drainage line treatment.  

3.5     Overall observations on the achievements covering ::

a.      Strategy

Following strategy is adopted in achieving the targets

§               Multi Disciplinary Teams were made responsible for planning, guiding technically and reviewing the progress of the interventions being taken up by the Watershed Committees and Project Implementation Agencies in their jurisdiction.

§               Meetings were conducted every month at field level, PIA level and MDT level to sort out the problems and removing the obstacles for smooth implementation of the programme.

b.     Implementation Quality

Following steps have been taken to improve the quality in execution of the various interventions

§               Necessary capacity building programmes have been arranged for improvement of quality in all kinds of interventions being taken up at field level.

§               Regular inspections have been carried out by the Multi Disciplinary Teams to check the quality of the works.

§               Project Director visited the sites of works frequently to stress the need of qualitative work.

c.      Problems encountered

Following problems have been encountered during the implementation of the programme

§               Non-availability of sufficient staff for effective monitoring at field and office level.

d.     Lessons learnt

§               Need to build more awareness among the primary stake holders particularly about the long term benefits of the programmes.

§               Need to impart the knowledge on latest technical innovations to the secondary stake holders.

ANNUAL ACTION PLAN FOR 2005-06.

 

5.1             Total quantum of activity proposed for the year 

 

·        Annual Action Plan is prepared for the area to be treated during the year 2005-06 under various schemes sanctioned already.

·        The Action Plan consists of physical and financial targets prescribed for the year 2005-06 and the short fall of the previous year.

·        The total physical and financial targets are divided into four quarters of the year keeping in view the agricultural and working seasons.

·        The action plans are prepared based on the participatory planning involving the Watershed Committees, Gram Panchayats farmers, user groups and labour groups

 

The details of the action plan under various programmes are as follows.

 

     WATERSHED DEVELOPMENT PROGRAMME

·        An area of 24610 hectares of degraded land is proposed to be treated    with  an estimate cost of Rs. 1266.95 lakhs

             Increase in Scale of activities                                             :                       6.13 times

 

5.3       The Rationale for the selection of the area

 

The rationale for the selection of the areas for watershed treatment is

·        Eroded and degraded soils with poor fertility

·        Depleted ground water table

·        Scarcity of drinking water

·        Erratic rainfall leading to frequent droughts

·        Land holdings of the poor are more

·        Wage employment to the labor is required to stop migration

 

5.4             Implementation Strategy

 

·        Involve the Gram Panchayat and other Community Based Organizations in the implementation of the programmes

·        The problems encountered and the lessons learnt during the implementation of the pragramme in earlier years will be duly kept in view.

·        More efforts to make it a completely participatory programme by taking up vigorous capacity building programmes

·        Additional staff will be taken in order to  achieve targets in time as the scale of activities has increased manifold.

EXPECTED OUTPUTS

 

 

6.1       Coverage of area

 

Following area is proposed to be covered under various programmes.

 

i.                    Watershed Development Programme             

An area of 13800 Hectares is proposed to be treated under this programme

                       

ii.         Indira Prabha, CLDP

An area of 4986 Hectares is proposed to be developed under RIDF IX and an area of 5710 Hectares is proposed to be developed under RIDF X. This area will be treated with various activities in a period of three years.

 

 

6.2       No. of families benefited

 

Following number of families are likely to be benefited under various programmes.

 

i.                    Watershed Development Programme             

A total of 4425 families are proposed to be benefited under this programme.

 

                                   

ii.         Indira Prabha, CLDP

A total of 10,144 families are proposed to be benefited under RIDF IX and a total of 10,056 families are proposed to be benefited under RIDF X in a period of three years.

 

6.3       No. of person days generated

Following person days are proposed to be generated under various programmes.

 

i.                    Watershed Development Programme             

A total of 473000 person days are proposed to be generated under this programme

ii.         Indira Prabha, CLDP

A total of 584500 person days are proposed to be generated under  RIDF IX and a total  of 357400 person days are proposed to be generated under RIDF X

iii.        Rain Shadow Area Development Programme

            A total  of 2200 person days are proposed to be generated under this programme   

 

6.4       Extent of additional area brought under use

Under Watershed Development Programme it is proposed to bring 5530 Hectares of uncultivable land in to productive use.

Under CLDP, RIDF IX  it is proposed to bring 4258 hectares of uncultivable land in to productive use

Under CLDP, RIDF X  it is proposed to bring 5710 hectares of uncultivable land in to productive use

 

6.5       Impact on Ground Water levels

Due to the interventions of previous years of the programme the water table is prevented from falling drastically as explained in the previous chapter. With the present interventions it is expected that the ground water level will be stabilized and may be increased by at least  2 meters in this year with a good monsoon support.

 

6.6       BETTER Water Management practices

The farmers are being persuaded to adopt better water management practices by switching to micro irrigation techniques for effective utilization of available water resources.

 

6.7       Impact on livelihoods

 

The new watershed guidelines prescribe an allocation of 10% of the cost of the project for providing livelihoods to the poorest of the poor in the area to be treated. Besides above,  various interventions proposed will generate wage employment to the wage seekers. The additional area to be brought in to cultivation will provide a boost to the economy of the poor.
