Summary or Abstract : Water resource management is an integral part of any sustainable development scenario. It plays a critical role, both in environmental issues and development issues, but most of the time, development and environment have not been looked at in an integral way. It is suggested in this research, that watershed management, which involves managing land use, water resources, human activities, within a management unit of a watershed, is an important tool for sustainable development involving environmental and development issues and can be used effectively to develop policies for sustainable development in a holistic way. In this research, a framework has been built, wherein it is shown how technology like hydrological/water quality models can be used effectively within the limits of a watershed to develop policies for land use and water resources so as to lead to sustainable development. This research is an effort to further the ongoing discourse on sustainable development. Various existing concepts in the literature have been applied to develop this framework. In this framework, watershed sustainability has been defined. It is then quantified by defining social, environmental and biodiversity indicators. By providing weightage to these indicators, a watershed index is built. The watershed sustainability is then calculated based on the concepts of reliability, resilience and vulnerability..
