PRESENTED BY AADYA AGRAWAL M.ARCH SEM-3 RECREATION ARCHITECTURE JMI UNIVERSITY.

NORTH EAST STATES


North east states are the most Backward regions in the country.

The region is home of breathtaking grassy valleys, hilly streams, lush green forests, snow-capped mountain peaks and mighty rivers.
It is characterized by low per Capita income, heavy populated, Lack of infrastructure, agricultural Dependent and very backward Communications region.

SWOT ANALYSIS
STRENGTH Blessed by mother nature, its a pristine Beauty to watch. Tribes, diverse culture and festivals Make it a best tourist spot. WEAKNESS Image problem- popular for its terrorist Activities. Low awareness about the tourism industry in the region. Poor infrastructure & connectivity. Less funds for tourism THREATS Terrorism is a major problem of the region. Unorganized tourism growth.

OPPORTUNITIES Govt of INDIA is focusing to Northeast states for its development. Potential for tourism growth. Tourist destination, especially for nature lovers and adventure enthusiasts.

Terrorism in the sense, there are territorial disputes between the states, bordering countries (BANGLADESH, CHINA, BHUTAN) terror attacks to capture the states.

SOCIO ECONOMIC CONDITION


The region has more than two-third of total geographical area covered by hills, so the agriculture is the dominant economic activity providing economy to 64.2% Of the total workers.

However, due to lack of appropriate strategies for development of natural resources, weak geographical links and poor infrastructure facilities, the region is handicapped in catching up with the agricultural developmental pathways.
As per the 2001 census, the annual per capita income of NER is 6,625 INR against the rest of India average of 10,254 INR. Nearly 34.28% of the population is below poverty line as compared to the national average of 26.1%. However, the NER is a highly literate region. Except for Arunachal Pradesh, all the other states have literacy rates about or above national average of 64.8% which provides a good pool of educated human resources in the region.

The educated population of this region can help in creating tourism growth awareness and this can lead to socio-economic growth.
