Arid Zone Research Association of India (AZRAI)



AZRAI was established in 1962, especially as conduit for scientific dialogue with arid land researchers in different parts of the world. The Association brought out its first biennial Journal, "Annals of Arid Zone" in 1963, which was later converted into a quarterly Journal. Apart from research articles, the Journal also publishes special issues on topical themes with contributions from eminent researchers worldwide

AZRAI also organizes periodically National and International Conferences to provide a forum to dryland scientists to exchange and share their research results and experiences. The Association has so far organized 3 International and 7 National Conference. AZRAI is playing a pivotal role in bringing scientists, planners, administrators and the public on a common platform to discuss the issues of common interests
