The present paper analysed the people’s participation, collective action and farm household behaviour in micro watersheds. Peoples participation in different stages of watershed implementation indicate that farm households show inclination towards participation in planning and project formulation, attending meetings, training and exposure visits when the programme is on-going. Households participation in watershed management is found to influence by household level, supra household level factors and type of rainwater harvesting structure. Adequate training on various watershed technologies will enhance households’ participation. The construction of structure may be followed based on the zone of influence.
