This paper is a lucid introduction to Peak Oil and its dire implications. It spells out the basics of Peak Oil and links Oil Exploration Dynamics to World Giant Oil Fields and eventually to the interconnectedness of Energy, Economy and Food availability. It also states India’s position in this context and cautions us unless we act with the foresight; we are heading towards economic contraction, declining food production and hyperinflation. The paper also underlines the fact that we live in an energy deficit society and failure to develop a foresight would surely be an ethical failure on our part.
The Resource book contains 9 tools related to monitoring of the products, processes and impacts of watershed development and one PM&E system as practiced in DANWADEP projects. The systems and tools are presented as case studies, as being operationalised and put into practice in different projects by the respective project actors. The idea is to provide practical information on application of these tools and how these tools helped in managing efficiency and effectiveness of project intervention by providing inputs for informed decision making.
