It may be drainage basin or stream. The management of rainfall and resultant runoff is based on a natural unit called water shed.
The Himalayas are one of the most critical water sheds in the world. Natural springs are the main source of water in Sikkim Himalaya where 80 per cent of rural people are dependent on it. Duga is among the eight driest part of state and springs are the primary source of water.
The increasing scarcity of water is being. management practices which could also contribute significantly to reduce flood hazards in downstream areas of the watershed. INTRODUCTION Nepal Himalayas is one of the high energy environments mainly because of very active tectonic activities, high relief and seasonal concentration of.
The nature of terrain imposes severe limitations on the scale of productive activities as well as on the efficiency of infrastructural facilities in the Indian Himalaya. As a result, biomass based subsistence agriculture constitutes the main source of rural livelihood.
During the recent past, rural resource development practices have changed in response to population increase and the resultant. Watershed management, which is an integrated set of soil and water conservation techniques that retain runoff and so increase water availability, can provide an environment for fisheries development for food or trade.
Fish found in streams and rivers serve as a source of food in varying degrees for about 40% of the households in the mid-Himalayas, which lie between the Siwaliks and the Great.

Rinkesh Chheda Ms. The Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH) is characterized by complex topography, climate, hydrology, and hydrogeology. Each of these factors plays an important role in determining the availability of water for people living in the Himalayas (Scott et al., ).These physical features are also a constraint to rapid urbanization (Mukherji et al., ).Only 3% of the total HKH population live in .In order to rehabilitate the area and to check further degradation, an Integrated Watershed Management Programme with the assistance of the World Bank popularly known as “Kandi project ” was under taken in 27 most critical sub-watersheds covering an area of 75, ha.
