Abstract

 This paper explores the reason of inefficiencies in implementation of community participation in  centrally sponsored watershed development programmes.   The partcipatory model has received incremental treatment  due to lack of political will which roots from reluctance to share power.   The main reasons is the founding principles  on  which participatory  development  is based namely Participatory Democracy and Decentralisation, both of which pose threat in terms of shift in power  from powerful decision makers to local level. Thus the   resultant policies which were outcome receive incremental treatment and lack of commitment by decision makers of the government.
