SOPPECOM is a voluntary, non-profit organisation registered under the Societies Registration Act and its primary objective is to promote and help the rural population, especially those who are dependent on their immediate ecosystem resources like land, water and biomass resources for their livelihoods, in the self-management of these resources as part of a wider process of equitable and sustainable development. In furtherance of this objective, SOPPECOM carries out research and advocacy, lends technical and knowledge support and also carries out pilot studies and action research. Presently SOPPECOM is anchoring the project activities of the Forum for Policy Dialogue on Water Conflicts in India (for details see www.soppecom.org; http://conflicts.indiawaterportal.org; www.waterconflictforum.org).

The core activities include research and documentation, training, dissemination and outreach and policy dialogue. Under the thematic work the four themes of right to water and sanitation, environmental flows, agricultural and industrial water use and groundwater are included.
The work would involve research and writing, networking and coordination, training, dissemination and outreach and also policy level work. A certain portion of the time would also go into routine administrative work. The Fellow and the research Associate are expected to contribute to all these activities at different levels.
