Peoples’ Science Institute (PSI), Dehradun and Winrock International India (WII), Gurgaon jointly initiated participatory hydrological studies in two micro-catchments that is, the Bhodi-Suan and Kuhan catchments that lie in the Changer region of Kangra district of Himachal Pradesh from August 2005 with the objective of promoting incentive-based mechanisms (IBM) for watershed protection services and improved livelihoods. Low cost hydrological monitoring stations and systems were established with the help of the watershed communities.
