About the National Seminar
Natural resources are derived from the environment. Many of them are essential for our survival while the others are used for satisfying our wants and the rest left as it is. The material world is heavily dependent on different natural resources. The widely used common definition of natural resource takes place naturally within environment that exists relatively undisturbed by mankind or available in a natural form. A natural resource is often characterized by amounts of biodiversity and geo-diversity existent in various ecosystems. The variety and quantity of uses of natural resources have increased at present to such an extent that these were never found before in the history of mankind. New requirements for various resources in modern society have increased the demand for them a thousand fold and have woven them into combinations whose patterns are constantly changing.
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 is congruent with the concept of sustainable development, a scientific principle that forms a basis for sustainable global land management and environmental governance to conserve and preserve natural resources. Natural resource management specifically focuses on a scientific and technical understanding of resources and ecology and the life-supporting capacity of those resources. Environmental management is also similar to natural resource. The natural resource management emphasis on sustainability can be traced back to early attempts to understand the ecological nature of American rangelands in the late 19th century, and the resource conservation movement of the same time. This type of analysis coalesced in the 20th century with recognition that preservationist conservation strategies had not been effective in halting the decline of natural resources. A more integrated approach was implemented recognizing the intertwined social, cultural, economic and political aspects of resource management.
