A day-long water management training programme on ground water development and management was held at the conference hall of Directorate of Geology and Mining (DGM), Dimapur on Friday.
The training was organized by Information education and communication of Central Ground Water Board (CCWG) and Central Ground Water Authority, ministry of water resources, government of India North Eastern Region, Guwahati, and attended by officials from departments of PHE, soil and water conservation, Irrigation and Flood Control, Geology and Mining and others.
Director DGM, H.K. Chishi who graced the programme as chief guest said that this type of capacity building organized at Dimapur would have an impact, as the state was very much in need to develop ground water.
He pointed out that at this juncture when the state was experiencing climate change, such programmes would help trainees to understand the ground water conditions and status of ground water resources in Nagaland, and in return would automatically develop ground water in a better and scientific way. The director expressed his hope that this training would help the government in the development of ground water in the state. Additional director DGM, E. Kikon the guest of honour reminded the participants of the training that most of the development activities in Nagaland take place in hilly areas and for which water security play an important role. For this, he called for conservation and judicious use of ground water resources.
“All development activities are subject to the available of water”, said Kikon and added it was time for every individual to understand the importance of water.
Pointing out that available water was declining to meet the demands of the growing population, the additional director felt the CCWG has taken up the right topic at the most opportune time.
