|PARTICIPATORY ACTION RESEARCH INITIATIVES|
Production of knowledge is through participatory learning and action research initiatives towards addressing the issues specific to the area / community through the involvement of the researchers and the communities on a common platform along with different stakeholders.
One major focus area was to facilitate people’s involvement towards evolving processes to address water resources management mainly in the wetlands and coastal areas, thereby enriching the people’s science and art of water and environment management. Three major action research initiatives are ongoing -
