Challenge

Deforestation, domestic wood harvesting, conversion to agriculture and other human pressures has threatened the ecology of khebrani Keti. Poor community dependent on this forest regarding livelihood i.e livestock, honey collecting, gum collecting, herbals and others will be deprived of their old occupations. This site was included in one of the prioritized sites in Pakistan by WWF-Pakistan but due to unavailability of funds they did not work.

Solution

We has signed MoU with Forest department govt of Sindh to restore and protect this site. using the sencitization tools and mobilization sessions, Eco-economic importance of this site will be delivered in community. Thinking of ownership will be developed among community members through awareness sessions. Plantation will be conducted in deforested area. Eco-guareds will be appointed by for conservation of forest and wildlife. 50 youth will be engaged in honey farming to linkage them with site.

Long-Term Impact

We has successful experience of "Forest restoration and protection committee" (FRPC) in other forests adjacent to this Keti since 2005. Same exercise will be replicated in this area. Local community representatives and forest staff will be engaged in FRPC. Youth, women and other sectors linked with this site through their economic benefits will be supporting partners in conservation activities. IDO will support for permanent basis. Site will be conserved with Eco-economic impacts.
