Over 100 stakeholders; representatives of pastoralists (including Orans dwelling communities), farmers, civil societies/ NGOs, researchers, cultural institutions, and district level government officers of the line departments, came together on the 22nd September 2016. The objective of the workshop was mainly to discuss the specifics of what has been proposed in the state under the Green-Ag Project, and to get buy-in and inputs from key stakeholders. In the Desert National Park (DNP) India, the project will seek to achieve enhanced conservation outcomes i.e. stop deforestation/desertification and restore grazing lands, also enhancing the wider production landscape around the DNP for improved livelihoods. The Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (“FAO”) has supported the workshop, under the project “Green-Ag Project: Transforming Indian agriculture for global environmental benefits and the conservation of the critical biodiversity and forest landscapes”. The workshop was facilitated by KRAPAVIS (Krishi Avam Paristhitiki Vikas Sansthan), venue at Krishi Vignyan Kendra (KVK) Jaisalmar, Rajasthan, India.
