The need:

What is the impact of participatory approaches to forest management?

How we helped:

SEEDS team studied the ongoing efforts of villagers in Chamoli District, led by Dasholi Gram Swaraj Mandal in reforesting and managing large hill slopes in an ecologically fragile landscape of upper Himalayas. The findings were extensively used in training workshops organised by IIPA.
