Watershed Development

The watershed development approach has been adopted by JJK for more than a decade. The effort in common lands with regards to forestry, soil and water conservation has given high priority in its approach beside land and agriculture development. The objective of the programme is to arrest rainwater runoff and conserves it in situ where it falls. Water and soil conservation also leads to improved green cover in the project areas leading to improve productivity of land. Under this programme, wastelands are developed in an integrated manner based on village micro watershed plans. The plan is developed with the participation of local people in regard to their needs. JJK has gained a high degree of technical competence in constructing cost effective water harvesting structures and community mobilization.
