Women's participation in watershed development in India


, : Women's participation in watershed development in India. Gatekeeper Series Sustainable Agriculture and Rural Livelihoods Programme, International Institute for Environment and Development ( 92): 20 pp.

Watershed development has been adopted in India to address land degradation and the need for increased agricultural productivity. Women have tended to be marginalized in watershed development projects because of the focus on land development, which given the control of land in many parts of India, makes it male-focused. The paper argues that the fact that women are often left out of such projects matters, because women play a central role in the management of natural resources.

Some authors suggest that there is a "window of infectivity" for mutans streptococci (MS) at an early age, after which colonization is not likely to occur. Moreover, children with low or non-detectable levels of MS at an early age are at...
