National Prosperity through Sustainable Management of Land and Water Resources
This Centre was established in 1974, as the Land and Water Management Research Centre (LWMRC) in the Department of Agriculture and played a vital role in soil and water management and its outputs were well utilized in the country’s agricultural development activities during 70s. Later in 1989, the activities and the responsibilities were broadened with the amalgamation of the Soil Conservation Division of the Department of Agriculture (DOA). In 1994, with the re-structuring of the DOA, the LWMRC was renamed as Natural Resources Management Centre.
