General

It is the necessary to ensure alternative mode of protection to habitats in Karbi Anglong Hills and the biological corridors to Kaziranga National Park as the indigenous Karbi tribe is not in favor of the creation of a Wildlife Sanctuary fearing loss of land rights and natural resources. Project will engage communities using traditional knowledge and appropriate technology to design sustainable and adaptive Participatory Natural Resources Management (PNRM) models for habitat conservation and reduce human disturbances. Beneficiaries will be trained for improved homestead agroforestry, sustainable harvest of Non Timber Forest Products (NTFP), value addition and marketing of products. Project objectives are: (1) Inventory and mapping of NTFP in the River Basin that are potential for sustainable management and creating a baseline; (2) Participatory perspective plan for Natural Resource Management; (3) Develop natural resource based sustainable livelihood and entrepreneurship models involving 100 households to initiate habitat protection and improved quality of life; (4) Document the process and system of best practices for communication with wider communities and stakeholders; and, (5) Create awareness among communities and stakeholders about ecosystems health, PNRM, livelihoods and entrepreneurships.
