Uttarakhand, endowed with rich natural resources, has a diverse and unique ecosystem. Yet, it is faced with daunting challenges due to its formidable terrain and the fragility of Himalayas. The moral imperative of it being a major ecological sentinel has cost it dear in terms of economic growth. Traditionally, the region has struck a balance between meeting its material needs and the ecological imperatives. However, given that ecological imperatives have been hemming its developmental efforts, the long-standing balance has started getting destroyed. Developmental activities and biotic interferences have been causing potentially irreparable damage to its ecology.
Uttarakhand Space Application Centre (USAC), in its existence spanning less than a decade, has worked intensively and extensively for improving the quality of life of the citizens of Uttarakhand. To enhance its utility further, USAC endeavours to constantly devise ways in which it can better serve the state. USAC strives to make the fruits of technology reach the doorstep of the last person, ensuring that the delicate fabric of this rich ecosystem is not eroded. Our endeavour is to ensure that natural resources, like land, water, forests, minerals and wildlife is protected, conserved, preserved and upgraded for the benefit of future generations. In light of the exigency of tackling issues of environmental and climate change, USAC is keen to contribute to the widespread effort to control and ameliorate the consequences of climate change.
Informatics which is so very important to provide level playing field to one and all remains, as ever, at the centre of USAC’s planning and management.
