The study has reported the impact of public interventions for amelioration of soil degradation through subsurface drainage
technology in the Tungabhadra Project area in Karnataka. The primary data, obtained from 105 farmers of TBP area, have been
analysed using budgeting, discounted cash flow measures and gini ratio. The provision of subsurface drainage through public
interventions, has increased the productivity of land appreciably (166 per cent) and has provided a source of regular income (Rs
13,636/ha from paddy) to resource-poor households. The technology has been found to be cost effective, socially acceptable and
economically feasible. The equity analysis has indicated reduction in inequalities in income distribution during the post-drainage

Farmers are usually reluctant to adopt measures to reduce the toll of soil erosion; and even when soil conservation structures are
adopted, farmers fail to manage them. This study investigates factors that influence adoption and management of soil conservation
structures in Fort-Jacques, Haiti. The results show that personal characteristics of farmers, institutional factors, such as local group
membership, training in soil conservation, per capita income and size of farm influence soil conservation adoption in
Forte-Jacques. Age, education, per capita household income, participation in local groups, the interaction of per capita household
income and farmers’ age influence rock wall management.

Discusses and illustrates concepts for identifying ways of improving productivity of water within basins. The results of applying a
water accounting procedure to four sub-basins in South Asia (Bhakra in India; Chishtian in Pakistan; Huruluwewa in northern Sri
Lanka; and Kirindi Oya in southern Sri Lanka) are presented. The methodology used identifies the quantities and productivity of
various uses of water within a basin. This information is then used to identify the water-saving potential, and the means of
improving the productivity of the managed supplies.
