The Economic Impact of Forest Hydrological Services on Local Communities: A Case Study from the Western Ghats of India

  • Agricultural Science
  • Economics


Building upon a larger research project at four sites in the Western Ghats of peninsular India, this study examines the link between stream flow, agricultural water use and economic returns to agriculture. The study attempts to simulate the likely impacts of regeneration of a degraded forest catchment on stream flow and the consequent impact on irrigation tankbased agriculture in a downstream village.
