Participatory integrated watershed management for in-situ conservation of the rainwater, recharging of about 2.8 lakh dug wells, renovation and repairs of Bundela, Chandela and Peshwa tanks, digging of farm ponds and open wells has been recommended as medium term measures. Development of unutilised water resources in MP, improving efficiency of the already developed canal irrigation system and Ken Betwa links are the long term investment portfolio for mitigating droughts.
