Watershed Development and Health

Study of Child Nutrition in Rural Semi-Arid Region

By Apoorvaa Pandit, Dipak Zade

In India, watershed development is important in the rejuvenation of degraded ecosystems in the rural semi-arid regions. The economic and social changes as facilitated by watershed development are well known. However, the impact this can have on community health are not well documented. Watershed development along with health inputs have the potential to bring about a change in the health culture of a community. This book examines whether change is reflected in the nutritional status, particularly of children. It also discusses child nutrition in the context of the development of villages in India. The book will be of immense use to development practitioners, policy makers, researchers, and academics.
