Watershed projects have succeeded in varying degrees in the country. If they are weak in organisational management, it is due to the failure of the co-interveners in providing enough opportunities.

MYRADA has been working on watershed development projects since 1984-85. Through its efforts it had developed a climate of trust and confidence at the field level. Peoples' institutions have emerged and stabilised at various degrees of successes because of these efforts. 

This book analyses the resons for the different degrees of success of these interventions, which includes experiences from projects where the government was involved with NGOs as well as those examples where the government was not involved.
