Abstract of 3rd Party Impact assessment

“The Project has demonstrated appropriate models for different agro-climatic regions.Use of GIS technology in planning, implementation & impact assessment and Watershed based approach for promotion of different project activities. I have visited many projects around the world and never came across any such integrated & quality work. These works need to be shared across so that others can also be benefited.”
