  24. 24. OUR WATER MANAGEMENT INITIATIVE AT CHANAN (Banka District),BIHAR
  25. 25. Introduction• The background – lack of proper Water Management practices in areas of moderate rainfall of east- central India• Lack of proper utilization of monsoon rainwater – Low agricultural productivity – subsistence agriculture propagating poverty• Development approaches- top-down vs. bottom-up approaches• Growing importance of participatory approach in developing economies.
  26. 26. Study area: The Chandan River Basin CHANDAN RIVER BASIN INDIA BANGLADESH Heth Chanan Bara Tanr
  27. 27. SOCIO-CULTURAL ASPECTS• The total population is approx. 5250 persons, & total no. of households are 920.• The literacy rate is 28.7%. The female literacy rate is only 14%.• The number of women in the 16-60 years age group is 1478.• Cultural transition required
  28. 28. Economic aspects• Categorization of the area’s population as mainly “below poverty line” (BPL).• Low agricultural lead and low income generation for farmers attributed to uneven rainfall distribution, absence of water harvesting structures, and soil and water conservation methods.• Out-migration of working male population was a serious problem
  29. 29. Integrated Watershed management- a holistic development initiative• A micro-level development initiative was launched in Bihar in 2007 through public private partnership and participatory approach for a sustainable rural economy.• Positive outcomes within short span of time - Sustained Agricultural productivity. - Economic diversification following agricultural surplus, halting of out migration, gender equity.

Why Diversion Bases Irrigation ?Enables poor farmersliving in difficult terrainsto double their incomesby taking the second cropusing diverted waterflows.Technically such schemesare feasible in farflung, remote and tribalareas usually facingneglect by the State.Investments is lesscompared to othersource of irrigation.O & M cost is less.
  31. 31. Methodology• Obtaining data on physical and social parameters of the study areas• Inputs from maps , GPS and GIS database- detailed study of topographical maps that helped to decide upon soil and water conservation methods.• Interviews with stakeholders to obtain feedback on development strategies followed.• Community organization and participation with stress on gender representation.• EIA study to gauge the sustainability of this project.• To present a holistic model of rural development in India
  32. 32. Community Organization Self Help Groups Tola of Women &Representatives Landless Persons Village Village Farmers Planning Watershed Club Committee Committee Village Cooperative Societies Apex Cooperative
  33. 33. Obstacles in implementing the program • Problem of local acceptance • Problem from local politicians • Problem of women’s participation
  34. 34. Steps in motivating Community Participation• Living within the village community, and exchanging of views through discussions & meetings• Building of first check dams to conserve water- motivation for others to join• Formation of groups or TOLAs as first step of village organisation• Gender representation• Watershed Community CAPACITY BUILDING PHASE• Gaining trust by servant leadership
