There is a growing need of sustained policy of capacity building of human resources for diverse reasons. Multiple factors influence periodical training, such as staff turnover at regular interval; continual emergence and arrival of newer and sophisticated techniques in WR Sector; its nudging impact on work force; hastening the process of learning; to keep updated the officials about fast emerging challenges besides several others. Capacity building does prepare a battery of inspired, well-informed and skilled officers at diverse locations ready to spread right information. This apart, capacity building process is not as expensive as other measures employed to tackle challenges. In contrast, its overall impact is astronomical, and requires to be pursued in right earnest. It is possible that its impact may not be evident in short run, a continual and dedicated effort as we go along in this direction surely help engineering communities and decision makers to realize any ambitious target.
Experience in capacity building at various levels need to be shared amongst the practicing communities to enable them to leverage the solutions most appropriate for them. Also, with the involvement of modern web based technology and ubiquitous reach of mobile devices with even increasing capabilities, the non-conventional method of knowledge dissemination is to be brought into regular practice. The participants may deliberate on the same during the session.
