In today's Iran villagers' participation is regarded as one of the most important
topics in the development and transformation of certain rural regions. Explaining
the necessities, policies and practical methods of villagers' participation in
watershed management is regarded as a helpful and important solution for Iran's
governmental organizations, such as the Ministry of Jahade Sazandegi. The purpose
of this research is to evaluate people's participation in watershed management.
This study wanted to define people's participation in the programs related
to water resources management. The conclusion reached was that watershed management
combined with governmental support and peoples' participation is necessary to
development and environmental protection. It is also very important to encourage
rural inhabitants to participate in watershed management programs and to establish
watershed cooperative associations.
