Challenge

The community are mostly Kuki and they depend on forest for their livelihood. The livelihood system is integrated with forest and animal husbandry. They depend on forest for rice, vegetables, fodder for animals, water, firewood etc. Forest is the life of the community. There are deforestation and pressure on land. The community practices jhum cultivation (slash and burn). Every year village council allotted a particular plot of forest cover in hills to families for cultivation.

Solution

We plan to do the following to fight the changing climate through awareness generation among community about climate change Formation of women led community resource management groups Meeting on sustainable community resource management practices Prepare climate action plan for each village based on resources - Community afforestation programme - planting of trees. Protection of water source - Identify forest area where no farming, cutting of trees etc are allowed.

Long-Term Impact

Women led community resource management groups started to function - community plants trees, protect forest and water source - Forest cover where no farming is allowed is identified and demarcated. - Women climate justice defenders started to help the community on climate adaptation. - Slash and burn practices reduced due to the practice of SALT farming.
