Watershed management aims to provide a holistic approach towards natural resource management including soil conservation, crop management, fodder development, forestry conservation etc., Since purpose and objective of watershed management varies according to place, region, country and demands of the people, it is difficult to identify certain common objectives of watershed management.

However, generally speaking, watershed management projects aims to achieve the following objectives : 1. Conservation of moisture in rain-fed areas for optimal production ; 2. To reduce soil erosion and ensure soil and water conservation ; 3. To control the problems of salinity, drainage and alkalinity ; 4. To prevent floods and siltation in reservoirs ; 5. Collection of surplus runoff in farm ponds and its recycling ; 6. To recharge ground water and increase water tables in wells ; 7. To meet drinking water demands from human population and cattle ; 8. To improve on farm irrigation systems for increased productivity ; 9. To balance non agricultural uses on land and water ; and 10. Generation of income and employment in harmony with land and the agro climatic conditions.
