The emphasis in research will be to study the ecological aspects of the wetlands and its utility to the flora and fauna including the bird species. Although the species and habitat specific research will have a prominence, integrating sustainability of individual wetlands is of equal concern. This would be addressed by understanding the significance of a wetland in terms of the ecosystem benefit it provides to man. The result would be utilised to design models for the benefit of the policy makers.
The WE division also aims at creating training and awareness modules for capacity building of various stake holders that include the students, teachers, researchers, common man to policy makers.
