RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT
AREAS OF NRDMS :
Under NRDMS, thrust areas have been identified
to promote research and development activities on different aspects
of micro level planning. Academic institutions, research laboratories
and voluntary scientific bodies are supported for undertaking
area-specific case studies to develop and upgrade the practices
and techniques of resource management and demonstrate their efficacy.
Studies carried out over the past few years in different areas
like land and water system analysis, watershed management, groundwater
budgeting, energy planning, and landslides have contributed to
the understanding of the complex task of drawing up sustainable
development strategies for smaller area units.
