    The new generation of watershed management programmes and projects
    A resource book for practitioners and local decision-makers based on the findings and recommendations of a FAO review
    2006
    Also available in:

    On the occasion of the International Year of Mountains-2002, FAO and its partners undertook a large-scale assessment and global review of the current status and future trends of integrated and participatory watershed management. The overall objectives were to promote the exchange and dissemination of experiences in implementing watershed management projects in the decade from 1990 to 2000 and to identify the vision for a new generation of watershed management programmes and projects. This resour ce book represents a summary and critical analysis of the rich discussions and vast materials that emerged during the review, as well as the review's findings and recommendations. It presents the state of the art in watershed management, promotes further reflection and creative thinking and proposes new ideas and approaches for future watershed management programmes and projects. This publication has been written primarily for field-level watershed management practitioners and local decision-mak ers involved in watershed management at the district or municipality level. It will also be a useful source of information for other readers such as senior officers and consultants specialized in other areas, evaluators, policy-makers and students of watershed management.

    This report presents findings from a community participatory study conducted to determine the seasonality of malnutrition and factors associated with malnutrition among children and women in Laisamis subcounty, Marsabit County. The study was conducted as part of the Livestock for Health (L4H) project. This project investigates the cost-effectiveness of livestock feeding and nutritional counselling during critical dry periods in reducing the risk of acute malnutrition in children below 5 years of age and in pregnant and lactating women (PLW). The L4H project is based on the observed patterns of increased acute malnutrition, associated with decreased milk consumption, among women and children in pastoralist communities. The study used a mixed methods approach to collect data from the two main communities (Rendille and Samburu) residing in Laisamis subcounty. The aim of the study was to understand the communities’ livelihood patterns and strategies, the observed temporal patterns of acute malnutrition in children and women, the factors determining the malnutrition patterns, and communities’ perspectives on practices and programming used to minimize malnutrition in the community. The report outlines the key findings from the three data collection methods used. (key informant interviews, focus group discussions and participatory epidemiology methods) and gathering information from men and women from each of the two communities separately.

    Also available in:

    Participatory Land Use Planning (PLUP) requires the active involvement of the local stakeholders and the village tract communities. The use of Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) in mapping and planning land uses, is an emerging and efficient technology for acquiring thematic spatial data for participatory land use planning and mapping at village or township levels. The use of UAVs was preferred for cost-effectively collecting quality geospatial data and information at very high resolution in a flexible, participatory and transparent manner in NyaungU and Kyaukpaduang townships at Village tract level. Data collected using the UAVs included; aerial imagery for mapping of village boundaries, land use, land cover, infrastructure, public facilities and utilities, point cloud data for creating digital terrain models. The same participatory procedures were used in the great delta of Ayeyarwady Region in Labutta Township and in the upland areas of Mindat and Kanteplet Townships in Chin State. The usage of UAV technology enhanced the participatory process by enabling identification of visible land use types, crop types, infrastructure, facilities and delineable boundaries by the local non-technical village participants. This information was used in the PLUP process at several stages namely; the preparation stage, Mapping existing land uses and other features (infrastructure, utilities, and facilities, delineating village boundary), Mapping of proposed land use sites, i.e. community forest sites, and delineating land tenure systems in the selected project sites.
