NATURAL RESOURCES


DEFINITION Natural resources (economically referred to as land or raw materials) occur naturally within environments that exist relatively undisturbed by mankind, in a natural form.

CLASSIFICATION
 

 

 

On the basis of origin: Biotic Abiotic On the basis of stage of development: Potential Resources Actual Resources On the basis of renewability: Renewable resources Non-renewable resources

NATURAL RESOURCE MANAGEMENT




Natural resource management refers to the management of natural resources such as land, water, soil, plants and animals, with a particular focus on how management affects the quality of life for both present and future generations. Natural resource management specifically focuses on a scientific and technical understanding of resources and ecology and the life-supporting capacity of those resources.

LAND RESOURCES AND ITS MANAGEMENT




Sustainable Land Management: SLM can be defined as the use of land resources, including soils, water, animals and plants, for the production of goods to meet changing human needs, while simultaneously ensuring the long-term productive potential of these resources and the maintenance of their environmental functions

LAND RESOURCES AND ITS MANAGEMENT


 

SLM is based on objectives: Maintaining long term productivity of the ecosystem functions Increasing productivity of goods and services, and particularly safe and healthy food.

LAND RESOURCES AND ITS MANAGEMENT




Land Policy and Planning: Land policy aims to achieve certain objectives relating to the security and distribution of land rights, land use and land management, and access to land, including the forms of tenure under which it is held.

LAND RESOURCES AND ITS MANAGEMENT




Land-use (or Land Resources) Planning: Land-use (or Land Resources) Planning is a systematic and iterative procedure carried out in order to create an enabling environment for sustainable development of land resources which meets peoples needs and demands

1.) Land-use planning at the national level

2.) Land-use planning at the district level:

STUDY OF NATURAL RESOURCES IN HIMALYAN AND OUTER HIMALAYAN REGIONS




Methodology:
The investigation was carried out in villages of Dehradun district and Narendra Nagar (Tehri Garhwal). Information was collected with respect to the social and historical perspective of the Garhwal region, zoning system, depletion of natural resources, methods of conservation, concept of watershed management, prediction and beliefs, and cultural education. A total of 200 farmers including women were interviewed.

MANAGEMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES IN HIMALAYAN REGION


A.MECHANICAL MEASURES:
1. 2. 3. 4.

These measures related to: Watershed Management Irrigation Water Harvesting Management of Drinking Water

MANAGEMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES IN HIMALAYAN REGION

B. AGRICULTURE MEASURES:
1. 2. 3. 4.

These measures includes: Special type of traditional plough Ploughing of land several times Preferring mixed cropping for minimizing risk Ploughing land straight instead of in circles

MANAGEMENT OF NATURAL RESOURCES IN HIMALAYAN REGION

C.VEGETATIVE MEASURES:
1. 2.

3.

These measures includes: Hill farmers grow trees of economic value In order to have conserve soil and water they grow grasses for ground cover In the hills of Mussoorie and Narendranagar areas peach, pear, khumani and apple are grown at higher elevations

NEED FOR MANAGING THE NATURAL RESOURCES


 

Everything that we use or consume are obtained from resources on this earth. If one depletes them too fast, without the possibility of their regeneration, one will be creating untold misery for oneself and for the future generations. Major rivers like the Ganga and Yamuna, the life line for the northern Gangetic plain food belt have become gravely polluted. To reduce the GREEN HOUSE EFFECT which is the major cause of global warming.

BENEFITS OF MANAGING WILDLIFE RESOURCES


1.AESTHETIC AND RECREATIONAL BENEFITS:
  

Brings beauty & enjoyment to our life Provides recreational opportunities Provides beautiful view of wildlife and wildflowers

2.SOCIAL AND EDUCATIONAL BENEFITS:


  

Increase access to more natural areas Strive to bring people and nature together Schoolchildren benefited by learning about nature, ecology, and wildlife management

BENEFITS OF MANAGING WILDLIFE RESOURCES


3.ECOLOGICAL BENEFITS:
  

Benefit to the Health of people Forests produces oxygen Essential processes within the ecosystem do not diminish

4.ECONOMIC BENEFITS:


 

Planting a shelterbelt provides the landowner with economic benefits Reduce air conditioning costs throughout the warm season Increases property values

REMEMBER
To ensure sustainable use of resources in our environment utilize the principle of 'The Four R's.' REDUCE REUSE RECYCLE REFOREST

   

CONCLUSION
We conclude that the natural resource are scarce and its management is very essential. Govt. on the other hand should implement such policies which impose responsibilities on the corporates and the citizens to mange and conserve the natural resources so that our economy become more competitive in the world economy and future generations can also avail benefits from these resources.
