Land And Water Management



ACIWRM during KISWRMIP Tranche-1 had prepared the river sub-basin profile and plan of Tungabhadra (K8) & Vedavati (K9) sub-basins on pilot basis for sustainable management of water resources through implementation of IWRM principles. Land and Water Management (LWM) Plans preparation as part of river basin planning through participatory approaches assumes importance as more than 80 per cent of the water is used for irrigation.

There are isolated efforts in the past made by the State Agricultural Universities, Agriculture Department by implementing demonstration of water saving technologies in small areas (less than one ha. to 50 ha. area) on farmers’ fields. Recently, large scale (about 25,000 ha at contiguous block) Micro Irrigation schemes are implemented in the State. However, implementation of integrated projects duly including water, land, crop and other uses of water and environmental aspects is not being implemented anywhere in the state.

ACIWRM has identified three Hydrological Units (HU) in the Tungabhadra river system to study and prepare plan for better management of land, water, agriculture, ecological services and human resources development. These plans were developed through community participation and stakeholders’ consultations. The plan of HU at Catchment area of Tungabhadra reservoir was prepared by the University of Horticultural Sciences, Bagalkot and for Distributary Number 17 (D-17) and Distributary Number 95 (D-95) of Tungabhadra Left Bank Canal (TLBC) prepared by the University of Agricultural Sciences, Raichur.
