Why Restoring Community land is Important for Us?

By Aman Singh | Team Project

Community play important role in land restoration
Community play important role in land restoration

On 30th Oct 2017, community leaders from the project villages met in an annual meeting, to discuss the importance of the restoration work on the community lands. They concluded that about 30-40 % of their yearly income was produced with directly or indirect contribution from the village common land. Apart from grazing our livestock on this land, we receive other various services from the community land are;

 Provisioning services

  • Sources of MFP (minor forest products, such as; medicinal plants, fruits, fuel wood, fodder etc.)
  • Soil and water conservation, ensure water supply for drinking and irrigation

Regulating services

  • Maintenance of forest and MFPs resources
  • Mitigation of natural hazards

Supporting services

  • Carbon sequestration and climate change mitigation
  • Pollination and seed dispersal
  • Amelioration of microclimate for flora and fauna

Cultural & amenity services

  • Religious, cultural tradition and ethnic identity
  • Landscape aesthetics, research and education

 Bholaram (55 years), a tribal leader shares, “lagbhag 40 pratishat aay hame shamalat jamin ke utpadan se hate hia, jo jayadtar charai tatha laghu van upaj ” (means around 40% of their annual income is from the CPRs (common property resources-land) and mainly through grazing and the MFPs).
