To achieve a successful watershed management programme. a number of issues are reviewed with prime focus on approaches used for watershed management planning. Initially, three widely used local level planning approaches are discussed. These are Local Level Participatory Planning Approach (LLPA), Land classification System (LeS) and Grass Root level Land Use Planning (GRLUP). Similarities and differences of approaches are highlighted in brevity. Subsequently, watershed management survey technique currently in use by the COSAERAR are discussed with illustrations of the Ardako catchment. Finally, the current institutional and manpower capacity of the eOSAERAR vis-a-vis watershed management sub-programme are critically analysed and discussed with lists of recommendations.
