Objective


Efficient and optimal management of water resource is a critical need for India. National Hydrology Project (NHP) has been setup for gathering Hydro-meteorological data which will be stored and analyzed on a real time basis and can be seamlessly accessed by any user at the State/District/village level. The programme focuses on water management through scientific data collection, dissemination of information on water availability in all blocks of the country and establishing of National Water Information Centre (NWIC). The automated system for Flood Forecasting is envisaged to reduce water related disasters. Extensive application of modern instrumentation technologies is necessary to fulfil these objectives. The workshop is expected to identify the opportunities and challenges in the implementation of NHP. It will also identify the type of job roles that are likely to be needed at various levels, as well as those job roles requiring reorientation. Alongside, the workshop is also expected to identify the training needs, re‐skilling and up‐skilling requirements for the workforce and the resources needed to realize it.
