“The KRAPAVIS interventions with the Gujjars in Sariska Tiger Reserve show that a change in the attitude of the conservation authorities’ vis-à-vis local communities is essential and authorities should take into consideration the needs of the communities whose survival is threatened by protective regulation. The way the villagers perceive conservation measures is extremely important as it can influence their willingness to respect them or not”. Reports Kotnala, Bhardwaj (April 2016): Pastoralists re-establish traditional ecosystems and customary rights; KRAPAVIS Case study of the ILC Database of Good Practices. Rome: ILC.

KRAPAVIS projects’ interventions have been to empower communities for asserting their grazing rights and traditional water harvesting techniques for preservation of the ‘Oran’- a traditional ecosystem unique to forest communities of Rajasthan. The villagers are demonstrating that community management of biodiversity is a better approach wildlife conservation rather than removal and resettlement of forest dependent communities from their habitat. KRAPAVIS along with communities carried out the participatory mapping exercise. Apart from preparing resource maps, community members also actively took part in preparing the Eco-Calendar showing changing pattern in access to forest resources with the change of seasons. They also prepared maps showing customary boundaries and landmarks of their villages and compared their customary map boundaries with the village revenue maps.
