At the panel discussion that was held as a part of the workshop, Brajakumar talked about the urgency of science based policy for protection and rejuvenation of springs in the state which can formulate an action plan with a climate resilient solution, it stated.  

It stated that keeping in view of the limited capacity and resources in the state, all the international organisations like ICIMOD, etc. need to extend their cooperation to the state of Manipur and NE states as well to revive the springs.

An agenda of an umbrella pilot project for Regional Springs Rejuvenation (Nagaland - Manipur – Mizoram) as a component of Climate Resilient Solution programme was also laid forth during the workshop by the joint director, it mentioned.
