For increasing fodder and grazing availability, 10 women from the pastoralist community in Bakhtpura village engaged in raising nursery for reforestation of Orans (grazing lands). A hands-on training program was conducted for the women by KRAPAVIS project. In the training, emphasis was given on criteria of selecting trees species is that encourage such trees that could provide more than one benefit to the communities (multi purpose trees e.g. fodder and fuel) i.e. 4E driven benefit - Economics, Employment, Energy and Ecology. “I now earn Rs. 400-500 every day through working on Nursery”, says Smt. Sauna, 65 yrs old pastoralist woman. Experiences from this village have been complied under an essay ‘From Stewards to Trespassers: Pastoralist Management of Forest Resources’ published in a book “Indigenous Perspectives on Pastoralism, Policy and the Environment”, The White Horse Press. The essay challenge common ecological approaches to understanding social change amongst pastoralist groups by focusing on the politics of resource distribution and control.
