    On The Term of Reference

  • Prior to implementation of the project, provision for training and exposure visit of the scientific team under hydrologic assessment group to a successfully completed project need to be there in the ToR.
  • Availability of input data at micro-watershed scale is a big constraint in hydrologic modeling. High resolution satellite data will be a bare necessity for geomorphologic characterization of MWS, modeling its hydrological fluxes, groundwater prospect mapping, delineation of recharge zones, water budgeting and crop planning etc. and above all, science based interventions for watershed planning and management. Modus operandi of collecting data from ORSAC and NRSC may be clearly mentioned in the ToR.
  • The option for hiring technical experts/service providers in addition to hands-on training of the key and non-key persons in the project for development of DSS, the major activity as outlined in the ToR, and again, to scale up or scale down the applications from sub-basin to MWS and vice versa should be kept open in the ToR.

    On Counterpart Staff and Facilities

    A key person from the client side should be nominated to coordinate among the partner institutes and extend all kinds of administrative support to the partners as and when required for smooth implementation the project work. Further, the project directors at district level should extend all kinds of technical and logistic support to the team as and when required.

    The Hydrology team of ICAR-IISWC proposes the following administrative and financial support from the Department of Soil Conservation and Watershed Development, Govt. of Odisha, to carry out the activities smoothly in the assigned REWARD districts.

  • List of pilot and LRI MWS for monitoring at Koraput and Nabarangpur district for treatment under REWARD along with their shape files, background reports and other secondary data.
  • Supply of LRI information and other high resolution images on time.
  • A framework of guidelines to facilitate effective implementation and monitoring of the REWARD Program
  • All MWS digital maps including settlite maps are to be made available the DSC&WD, Bhubaneswar through ORSAC, Bhubaneswar.
  • Financial support as needed and agreed as per the program.
  • Procurement of field instruments/equipment listed in FIN-3 as per the specification provided by the partner institutes.
  • Installation of the field instruments with technical support of the partner institutes.
  • Provision of watch and ward facility for the instruments in pilot and monitoring MWS.
  • Logistic support that includes accommodation, transportation and office room for the team at district headquarters.
  • The data collector for each monitoring MWS will be under the administrative control of the Project Directors of respective districts. Collection/retrieval of data from monitoring sites and transmission to the team should be ensured by the client.
