The Natural resources mandate is to ensure the conservation and sustainable management of environment & natural resources through a coordinated and holistic approach. The sector has a very direct linkage to the vision of the district i.e. to have a beautiful Amuria district. Natural resources directly influence agriculture through environment sustainability and also contribute directly to the district local revenue due to a widened tax base from abundant natural resource exploitation. The sustainability of natural resources indirectly determines success of other sectors of production, roads and water in the 5-year development plan that majorly relies on the environment to achieve its objectives.
