Abstract:
Andhra Pradesh has witnessed severe droughts in several places over the past few decades. Insufficient precipitation, groundwater depletion, soil erosion, low agriculture yield and deficiency of fodder are the consequences of the shortage of annual mean rainfall. These have resulted in insufficient livelihoods which lead people migration to other areas for employment. The broad objectives of this research study is to understand the various suitable NRM works to control the soil erosion, protection and conservation of the soil and water in the Batch-IV projects of Kurnool district and to understand how all these structures helped to conserve the natural resources and its impact of change in different parameters. The study also evaluated to assess the impact of the watershed projects on the socio-economic conditions of the people and also on other aspects such as environment, land use, cropping pattern, production & productivity of the crops, changes in water resources availability, etc., in the micro-watershed area.
