Description of RCE and Geographic Region:

RCE Guwahati is located in northeast India in an area noted for its blue hills, green valleys and red rivers. Economically, Guwahati plays a central role in the region and is home to many ethnic tribes, each with its unique language, traditions and socio-cultural heritage. Guwahati's boundaries are constantly expanding and, as is typical of Indian cities, it now faces several problems including poverty, loss of biodiversity, human-animal conflicts, land degradation, scarcity of drinking water, unplanned development, natural disasters, and a loss of traditional knowledge and wisdom.
