Explanation:

The Integrated Watershed Management Programme aims to harness, conserve, and develop degraded natural resources such as soil, vegetative cover, and water.

It focuses on preventing soil runoff, rainwater harvesting, and recharging the groundwater table.

The program also aims to regenerate natural vegetation, which contributes to the prevention of soil erosion and the overall improvement of the environment.

However, it does not include the objective of linking the country's perennial rivers with seasonal rivers.
