The Director, FRI and DG, ICFRE, Sh. Arun Singh Rawat, in his inaugural address, expressed his concern about the rising water pollution. He insisted that there should be a collaboration with other organizations and all should remain updated regarding the recent happenings and research in these fields. He extends that, there is a lot of pressure on water resources due to the burgeoning population and because of this majority are forced to drink packaged water in India. So, this is high time to work on water resources and other organizations should also come up for synergistic efforts. Work done in the past and present is on a watershed basis, which was like a pilot study so, elaborated/detailed studies are required.
