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.
