Case Study: Somb and Boli Catchments
This chapter presents the case study of Somb and Boli catchments of the Yamuna River basin. The area has overexploited the ground water resources, but water conservation techniques have little improved the water problems, but still need integrated watershed management practices. Public has played significant role in the watershed development programmes initiated by the government and NGOs, but vocational training for off-season income, and water related awareness will further improve the operational part of the development. Capacity building is another aspect, which need extra emphasis.
