Integrated Watershed Management Programme (IWMP)
Integrated Watershed Management Programme (IWMP) is a modified programme of erstwhile Drought Prone Areas Programme (DPAP), Desert Development Programme (DDP) and Integrated Wastelands Development Programme (IWDP) of the Department of Land Resources. This consolidation is for optimum use of resources, sustainable outcomes and integrated planning. The scheme was launched during 2009-10. The programme is being implemented as per Common Guidelines for Watershed Development Projects 2008.
The main objectives of the IWMP are to restore the ecological balance by harnessing, conserving and developing degraded natural resources such as soil, vegetative cover and water. The outcomes are prevention of soil erosion, regeneration of natural vegetation, rain water harvesting and recharging of the ground water table. This enables multi-cropping and the introduction of diverse agro-based activities, which help to provide sustainable livelihoods to the people residing in the watershed area.
The salient features of IWMP are as below:
(i) Setting up of Dedicated Institutions with multi-disciplinary experts at State level - State Level Nodal Agency (SLNA), District level - Watershed Cell cum Data Centre (WCDC), Project level - Project Implementing Agency (PIA) and Village level - Watershed Committee (WC).
(ii) Cluster Approach in selection and preparation of projects: Average size of project - about 5,000 ha.
(iii) Enhanced Cost Norms from Rs. 6000 per ha. to Rs.12,000/ha. in plains; Rs.15,000/ ha in difficult/hilly areas
(iv) Uniform Funding pattern of 90:10 between Centre & States.
(v) Release of central assistance in three installments (20%, 50% & 30%) instead of five installments.
(vi) Flexibility in the project period i.e. 4 to 7 years
(vii) Scientific planning of the projects by using IT, remote sensing techniques, GIS facilities for planning and monitoring & evaluation
(viii) Earmarking of project funds for DPR preparation (1%), Entry point activities (4%), Capacity building (5%), Monitoring (1%) and Evaluation (1%).
(ix) Introduction of new livelihood component with earmarking of project fund under Watershed Projects i.e. 9% of project fund for livelihoods for assetless people and 10% for production system & micro-enterprises
(x) Delegation of power of sanction of projects to States.

The note about Shrishti-IWMP Bhuvan: Shrishti-IWMP-BHUVAN is developed with an objective of providing support to Administrators, Planners, Data Providers, Field Level Personnel involved in the implementation of IMWP and also for general public towards creating, visualizing, analyzing as well as assessing the watershed management process and its activities. The portal gives access to Visualize IWMP programmes (including Special IWMP Watersheds), monitor, statistics, summary of the current ongoing and completed Watershed projects The services and features are created for each of this stakeholder group varies depending on the role of User. The Portal enables access to three categories of users viz., Administrator level, Data Provider level and Citizen level. At administrator level, provision is made to generate complete statistics, summary of ongoing and completed Watershed Programs. Data provider access provides support for online provision of data for partners and state agencies.Citizens would be able to visualize the overall information about Watershed project with a backdrop of image service and available legacy thematic data with Bhuvan.
The link for downloading mobile apk Drishti for uploading data for the IWMP-Bhvan portal is: http://bhuvan3.nrsc.gov.in/bhuvanapp/bhuvanapp_iwmp_v1.php
Short note on Drishti: Drishti is a simple Android mobile application which can be used in the field to send the field data at any stage of implementation to the geoportal for monitoring purposes. The software tool allows categorisation of the type of implementation, lat-long coordinates of the location, 2 photos of the actual status on the ground, uplinking facility from the field itself for near real-time posting on the geoportal, adding of attribute information at the field itself while sending the details. Any user can easily uplink such data from the field, including common public so that implementing agencies of IWMP can analyse these datasets to get an idea of actual implementation at field level, in addition to the satellite images. This uses GPS for location, GPRS/ Wifi as available for communicating to the server and automatically connects to the server for sending the data as and when connectivity exists from the mobile to the server. Drishti Talks to Shristi as desired from the field. Drishti can also be downloaded from the Shrishti webpage of the IWMP-Bhuvan Portal.

I. Watershed DPR & Works Estimate Preparation Software for IWMP:
The DPR application can be used to prepare Detailed Project Reports for IWMP projects whereas the Estimation Software can be used for preparing estimates of check dams, farm ponds, contour trenches, gully plugs, forestry and horticulture plantations etc. These applications will reduce duplication of time and effort in data collection and automate a number of steps in preparation of DPR while ensuring uniform output. The applications will further facilitate quality technical inputs in planning of watershed projects. The State specific customization may be required. SLNAs are requested to go through the User Manual and get in touch with CGARD, NIRD Hyderabad for State specific data upload and customization if required.

[DPR Preparation and Estimation Software User Manual] II. Geo-Hydrogeology Modelling for Watershed Planning:
The Geo-hydrology application can be used to create Digital Elevation Models, slope maps and flow accumulation maps. The application can suggest possible locations for water harvesting structures. The sites suggested by the application can be finalized after field verification. For Geohydrology GIS Software, the State SLNAs can use readily and no specific customization will be required. The Manual explains how to digitize contours in case digital contours are not available. The software is based on open source applications (QGIS) and no propriety software is required.

The note on IWMP-Process Management Software:
The Department of Land Resources has developed a web based application called IMWP-Process Management Software (IWMP-PMS) to help the various agencies in States in implementing IWMP as per schedule. The software is especially handy for the PIA and can be used for project management, deployment of resources, scheduling of activities, tracking of progress and decision making on a real time basis as per the status of the implementation of the project. The software is also helpful for the SLNA and WCDCs in tracking the progress of the IWMP projects.
The Software is based on the principles of Project Management where the various activities within an IMWP project are arranged in order of precedence according to the IWMP Common Guidelines. The PIA needs only to update the status of activity by selecting YES. The current time stamp is automatically taken by the software. As per dependency of activities, the software will not allow a status update of an activity which has a dependency on two other activities unless those two activities are completed.
It is expected that the concerned agency will update the progress IMWP project wise only twice a month ie on the 1st and 16th of the month. For projects that are already into work phase, the legacy data on project implementation status will be updated from the backend after information is collected from the States.
The Web Link of IMWP-PMS is: www.iwmp-pms.in
The project profile data is already in the system. However users will have to be created and authenticated by the respective SLNAs. User IDs and Passwords for the SLNAs and WCDCs will be sent. After creation of PIA users, they will have to select their IWMP projects to create a user mapping. Projects not available in the list can be added.
