By Aman Singh | Team Leader

Pastoralists-led Mapping of their Forest lands
Pastoralists-led Mapping of their Forest lands

During the reporting period, a process of mapping according to the indigenous pastoral communities' knowledge has been initiated for the recognition of forests rights, particularly grazing and other rights over the forest lands. A series of workshop was organised in 10 villages. The forest on which the people depend was mapped in these village level workshops, through the process of historical mapping by the communities themselves, narrating the local names of every locality. In these workshops, brief presentation of the contextual history of the Indian Forest Rights Act 2006 highlighting the historical injustice done to these forest dwellers. Tracking the laws and policies to show that the conservation laws and policies began to recognise that without the cooperation of the local community, the forests cannot be protected. Further to discuss the multifarious dimensions of forest based livelihood systems and the relevance of community forest rights and to strengthen this process, a day long discussion held in participation of several like minded groups (IELA, KRAPAVIS, Sakti, Jungle Jameen Jan Andolan), on 22nd July 2015.
