“KRAPAVIS, a local CSO based in Alwar, which has played a role in mobilizing the pastoralists of the region, have been in the forefront of highlighting the relevance of Orans as the gene pool of Rajasthan on one hand and their intimate relationship with the local communities on the other”, writes Dr. Sunil Dubey, Member in five IUCN World Commissions, in his recent research report ‘Deliberate Deprivation of Forest Resource Rights and Forced Eviction of Indigenous Communities’.

KRAPAVIS project attempts to bring forth the perceptions and bio-cultural practices of forest dwelling and grazier communities in the Alwar district of the Indian State of Rajasthan. The project explores the perception of the communities about their relationship with forest resources, their traditional practices with respect to resource governance and major challenges relating to livelihood and land tenure. A series of participatory workshops, interactive sessions and interviews with the communities, organised by KRAPAVIS, with the help of a law agency Natural Justice.   In addition to regular interactions, we used participatory tools like community territory mapping and community resource mapping.

The participatory activities and interactions were with various communities namely, Gujjar, Jatavs, Meena, Jogi and other stakeholders. These communities were mainly from the villages of Bakhatpura, Bera, Kalikhol, Nathusar, Loj, Binak, Lilunda and others. Bhagwana Gujjar, a 70 years old pastoralist from Binak village says, “Hame en prakiryao se anpa charai jugal va pani sanrakshit karne me bahut bada labh hua” (these exercises helped us a lot for conservation of our grazing forest land and water).
