Abstract

This study was conducted in the command area of the Gundal irrigation project in Karnataka which is dependent on a forested catchment. It estimated the direct benefits and assessed the perceived indirect benefits of the protected watershed accruing to the community of the command area. Quantifying the major direct benefits (crops and fodder) realized by 4% of the beneficiary population, the study arrived at an estimated lower-bound (as some direct and all indirect benefits are not quantified) annual benefit of more than Rs.4 crores for 3584 acres of the command area. This indicates an additional amount of Rs.8667 per acre compared to un-irrigated farms in the area.
