watersheds, the overall economic and social status of the communities in the study areas improved following watershed interventions. Watershed size and hydrogeology play a critical role in management. In this study, macro-watersheds, such as the Abraha-Atsbeha watershed, performed much better on all performance indicators than smaller watersheds. Introduction. Watershed investment programs are premised on the assumption that managing land use and land cover in water source areas will protect or enhance downstream water services, such as the provision of clean drinking water, enhanced dry-season flow for transport or irrigation, and flood mitigation (Brauman et al. ).These programs occur in a variety of forms, including bilateral.

Watershed Management – Policies and Practices in a Humid Tropical Region K. Shadananan Nair Abstract In many tropical regions, increasing population and associated water needs in domestic, industrial and agricultural sectors exerts tremendous pressure on the watersheds. Even in water rich regions in the humid tropics like the State. Any Watershed Protection Approach must be tailored to suit the state's particular situation. State officials can benefit from reviewing the framework documents and, in some cases, watershed management plans from states such as North Carolina, South Carolina, Nebraska, Delaware and Washington. 6.

The digit and digit formats Reviews: 1. Watershed management in the tropics should focus on practices which promote synergies among agricultural production, environmental protection, and poverty alleviation. In this chapter the concept of sustainable land management practices which is crucial in selection of appropriate watershed management practices is discussed.

This new edition is a major revision of the popular introductory reference on hydrology and watershed management principles, methods, and applications.

The book's content and scope have been improved and condensed, with updated chapters on the management of forest, woodland, rangeland, agricultural urban, and mixed land use watersheds. It summarizes the current thinking on watershed economics and confronting the complexities of watershed uses real life examples and a series of five case studies.

Ex-situ watershed management practices reduce peak discharge in order to reclaim gully formation and harvest substantial amount of runo/, which increases groundwater recharge and irrigation potential in watersheds.

Upland watersheds in the tropics provide a range of crucial ecosystem goods and services to people living in them as well as further downstream and elsewhere [5 ••].

These include being sources of food and water, pollination and pest. Watershed management. Watershed management is the integrated use of land, vegetation and water in a geographically discrete drainage area for the benefit of its residents, with the objective of protecting or conserving the hydrologic services that the watershed provides and of reducing or avoiding negative downstream or groundwater impacts (Darghouth et al., ).

Policy and practice in the management of tropical watersheds is packed with examples, case histories, illustrations, results, and exact references to projects and programmes.

Sir Charles's critical analysis is always constructive, and most, perhaps all, reference sources in the book will be proud of having been included and feel they have received fair treatment.
