Why RRC?

Rivers are considered as the lifeline of any civilization. It’s not only a geomorphic entity but an important ecological system on which the sustainability of modern society is dependent. In spite of the pivotal role rivers play in sustaining human civilizations, the understanding of large river systems and appreciation of their multidimensional nature is still fragmentary. The anthropogenic activities and its impact, environmental degradation, advancement of modern technologies and shortage of water due to the continuous growth and demand of fresh water poses a serious impact on the world water availability ratio. Through this centre we will try to find out the possible solutions of these various problems and to support the various initiatives taken by the NMCG to protect this valuable resource.
