Conservation of natural resources is a global concern for the whole world. Land and water are important resources, conservation, and use is a very important factor.
For conservation of those resources, watershed management is the best technique which included the participatory approach of the community. Landuse/land cover change has become a central component in current strategies for managing natural resources and monitoring environmental changes. Wetland conservation is also the main focus of this study. Many wetlands should be conserved which directly or indirectly involved with the community and their livelihood.
Remote Sensing (RS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) techniques provide effective tools for analyzing the watershed management and site suitability for adaptive measures of the region as well as for monitoring, mapping, and management of natural resources
