In the project area, Orans (community conserved areas) have proved to be a source of food, fodder and livelihoods for communities, thus providing adaptive capacity to people. Radeprasad, 68 years old pastoralist from Doba village shares his experiences, “many of our livelihoods also lead to restoration and conservation of the Orans”, in a consultation conducted in July 2019. Thus, this set of ecosystem and livelihoods provides resilience and reduces the vulnerability of the local communities to climate change, while also maintaining and improving the ecosystem. The community conservation of Orans is driven by the extent of livelihoods people derive from the resources that Orans provide. It was thus decided in the consultation that the Ecosystem based Adaptation, is the most appropriate fit for this work, and over time could prove to be a good indicator of adaptation to climate change.
