Published: Friday 31 March 2000

At the instance of the Centre for Science and Environment, New Delhi, Madhya Pradesh chief minister Digvijay Singh has been invited to inaugurate a workshop on community-based watershed management at the Second World Water Forum to be held in The Hague in March. The invitation comes in the wake of recent success in implementing the novel technique in his state.

He has also been included in the panel of "political reformers" in the area of watershed management and will take part in a special session convened by the World Bank. He initiated the Rajiv Gandhi Mission for Watershed Development in 1995-96. This move was followed by other missions in areas like basic education and community health.
