‘The Conservation, Protection and Management of the Natural Resources in the State viz: Soil, Water and Vegetation for livelihood security’.
         Competing demands in Agriculture, Industry, and other domestic sectors have resulted in intensive and unscientific exploitation of soil, water and vegetation thereby causing widespread eco-system and land degradation.

         In this context, the Land Resources, Soil & Water Conservation Department, Government of Mizoram has been entrusted with the task of formulation and implementation of schemes and projects not only to conserve soil, water and vegetation but also to promote their efficient use and environmental awareness so as to ensure sustainable development.
