Pastoralist Women Map Village Natural Resources

Pastoralist Women Map Village Natural Resource
Pastoralist Women Map Village Natural Resource

Pastoralist communities, particularly women, in the project area have come forward with mapping of their village natural resources and specific aspects of the life support system of local communities and its relation to the kind of eco-friendly system services provided in these grazing landscapes. Roondhs identified as the major grazing areas where communities customarily graze their livestock such as buffaloes, goats, camels, cows. They also collect forest resources such as grass, stone, wood from Roondhs. They also have demarcated areas that are dedicated to a local deity usually called Devbannis or Orans which they actively conserve and protect through various rules. Devbannis serve as grazing areas even in summer.

The local communities will use this map as a tool for discussion to understand the relevance of community forest rights claim and their relationship with forest resources, their traditional practices with respect to resource governance and major challenges relating to livelihood and land tenure. Pamphlet, as fact sheet, has been developed and distributed among the communities for awareness and campaigning. Community worker of the project, Mr. Tewari facilitates this sustainable ecological development planning.
