Some of the practical challenges involved in implementation of the WRD component of Wadi are as follows:
- Land suitable for WRD works sometimes falls in notified forest areas or private lands. Getting the formal assent of these land-owners can be time-consuming or difficult.
- When Wadi plots are highly scattered, developing water resources for common use can become costly.
Funding sources, such as water user fees, have to be put in place for desilting and repair of relatively large structures such as checkdams after the project period.
