The prime focus of this project is to train and empower the critical stakeholders in river management & restoration practices. The training is in the context of an acute shortage of well-trained individuals with good reflexes in rectifying the fluctuating health of the River and riverine resources.

The training is aimed at imparting science-based knowledge and skills to assess and monitor the comprehensive health of culturally and economically important rivers of India. The trainees also will be familiarized with innovative river management practices and the power of people’s participation in river health management.

The training group includes a cohort of stakeholders, scientists, local government, and representative community institutions.

Eminent veteran scientists in conjunction with native knowledgeable local leaders and professionals will lead the training sessions.
