Kasturirangan emphasized the scarcity of natural resources due to population gains and the pressures of economic progress, and indicated that better management of resources is imperative to provide plenty for all. The role of earth observation and remote sensing technologies to monitor and evaluate the performance of agriculture production and environmental conservation can help meet these challenges.

These missions include Green India, Sustainable Habitat, Water Mission, Sustainable Agriculture and Strategic Knowledge.
