As the Indian population continues to grow there will be an immense competition for natural resources while achieving food, nutritional, environmental and livelihood security in the country. In addition, the negative consequences of climate change become more evident in agriculture with exploitation of natural resources, decline in soil fertility, ground water levels to meet the ever increasing demands for food and nutritional requirements. To maintain sustainable balance between natural resources and the demand, immediate attention is needed in several areas viz., imbalanced use of fertilizers, declining soil organic carbon, lowering of water table, soil health, organic farming and climate change impact in agriculture sector.

Recent studies on soil biodiversity, rapid composting techniques, use of bio-filters for removal of heavy metals from compost, application of Nano sensors in agriculture to improve nutrient use efficiency, need based fortification of micro nutrients; availability of soil health card, conservation agriculture for enhancing soil health etc. will support sustainable management of natural resources in agriculture.

With a particular focus on scientific and technical understanding of natural resources management, this portal tries to incorporate stakeholders suggestions in achieving sustainable natural resources management.

माननीय प्रधान मन्त्री श्री नरेन्द्र मोदी, मैंने green cooking fuels पर अपना Blog pdf में यहां अपलोड किया है (अंग्रेज़ी में)। इसमें मैंनें सुझाव दिया है कि woody biomass और गोबर का 300 deg C पर torrefaction करके उसके pellets गांव गांव में खाना पकाने के लिये use किये जाएं, जिससे कि पेट्रोल और गैस की खपत कम हो और धुआं भी न निकले ।

Hello,
To preserve the natural resources we should try to first to utilize the renewable source of energy.

1. Gov't. should pass a law stating that once in a week no one will use personal vehicle to go to the work place or till the bus/railway station. Only bicycles to be used.

2. Every house, factory, apartments, buildings should leave around 30% spare land without any flooring. This will help in water percolating and thus increasing the ground water level.

Soil microbes have a major role in maintaining the fertility and soil health. This process is being disturbed by burning the straw obtained after harvest of either paddy or wheat insitu. Instead of burning these straw it can be decomposed in the field insitu by application of a microbial consortium that is able to decompose the biomass and make available the nutrients for the succeeding crop. Not only this, it can also combat climate change and minimize India's contribution towards globalwarming

Request to re-think on connecting rivers project. Of course it is too costly but we can ask for Rs.1/- or Rs.10/- per person to donate for the project and utilize each single donation without any corruption. And if people can make beautiful city in the desert then we can definitely make it. It can solve so many problems.
-Improves production in farming sector
-Helpful to generate electricity with a project like Sardar sarovar yojna
-Increase water level
-Drinking water problems @many places
