Modernization and industrialization of economies has marked a shift in the human and natural relationship from stewardship to that of exploitation of natural resources and environmental pollution. While the natural resource streams have been degraded by overuse, misuse and abuse by societies worldwide, their outputs have resulted in widespread air pollution, water contamination, land degradation and generation of wastes. The rate of creation of these residual affluent and wastes in the natural surroundings far outreaches the regenerative and assimilative capacities of ecosystems. While scientific knowledge informs that as nations and societies develop their capacities to tackle environmental issues enhances, but ISARD believes that rapidly growing economies should be pro-active in dealing with environmental risks and impacts. In addition, energy access and security to all should be channeled through clean and safe energy systems. As such, ISARD works in the areas of natural resource management, ecological modeling, carrying capacity, environmental economics, energy analysis and audit, renewables and energy efficiency, environmental impact assessments and pollution abatement at regional, sub-regional and local scales.

Comprehensive Study of Impacts of Watershed Project in H.P. and Haryana.

National Institute of Rural Development (NIRD) Hyderabad, of the Government of India was awarded the above study in 5 IWDP watersheds in districts of Hamirpur, Kangra, Kulu, Sirmur and Solan of HP and 10 IWDP of Mahendragarh and Kaithal districts of Haryana to DBD Environmental Services and Developmental Initiatives Pvt. Ltd. New Delhi (ESDI). The Indian Society for Applied Research& Development (ISARD) was appointed as collaborative agency for the above study. The study aims at making a comprehensive assessment of the impacts of implementation of watershed development projects, completed during the period from April 2002 and March, 2005, on productivity, and income of the families living in the watershed and improved management of natural resource.

Baseline study for integrated Watershed Management Programme (IWMP), Uttar Pradesh

The main objectives of the IWMP are to restore the ecological balance by harnessing, conserving and developing degraded natural resources such as soil, vegetative cover and water. The outcomes are prevention of soil erosion, regeneration of natural vegetation, rain water harvesting and recharging of the ground water table. This enables multi-cropping and the introduction of diverse agro-based activities, which help to provide sustainable livelihoods to the people residing in the watershed area. ISARD was appointed by IRG-IWMP, New Delhi to conduct the baseline survey, data entry and data analysis of this project.
