Our main focus is on Natural Resource Management & Environmental Conservation. Key programmes include land and water management activities, waste management, and preservation of biodiversity and mitigation of climate change impacts. The programmes are designed with a participatory approach along with inclusion of other partners who provide skills, knowledge, expertise and funds to enhance the effort and reach a larger number of people.

Mohan Manaji Hadiyal, 40, owns 12 acres of land and has been engaged in traditional farming for a very long time. Due to lack of knowledge and awareness regarding agriculture development practices his farm yield was low. In 2019, he took part in TCSRD’s awareness programme held in his village, which covered modern farming techniques. Through the programme he learned about different schemes and programmes introduced by the government, TCSRD and other institutions.
