Dhamtari district, with its diverse geographical and social features, lies in the central part of the state of Chhattisgarh. A significant - and fertile - part of the district falls in the Mahanadi basin. Paddy cultivation under irrigated farming system is one of the important contributors to the livelihoods of the people in this area. A distinct area in the south of the district has an undulating terrain with thick forest. Collection of minor forest produce adds to the livelihoods of people in this area where mostly subsistence agriculture is practiced because of the lack of irrigation. Another area within the district is where four of the medium and large dams of central Chhattisgarh are situated. A large number of villages, many of them still not rehabilitated, were displaced due to construction of these dams. Fishing has become an important activity for many people in the villages falling under the catchment areas of these dams.
