Challenge

The Konkan region is rich in biodiversity and Western Ghat is designated biodiversity hot-spot region and World Heritage Site by UNESCO. the region is losing its biodiversity due to forest fires which are man-made. Due to forest fires, native flora, fauna, precious forest resources including carbon locked in the biomass are lost every year. Not only the forests but the community is also getting affected through forest fires. locals are losing their livestock, houses, and Orchards.

Solution

164 villages local communities will be educated and sensitized about the loss from the forest fire and the importance of local biodiversity for a sustainable lifestyle. 20 educational institutes will be scientifically educated about forest fire, the impact of forest fire on local biodiversity, and adverse effects on climate. The local community will be engaged through a well-formed forest fire prevention committee for the conservation of the natural ecosystem.

Long-Term Impact

164 villages will be trained to prevent forest fires as an effect of awareness workshops and meetings. students from 20 educational institutes will be aware and trained to prevent Wildfire. The erosion of soil will significantly decrease. The biodiversity will restore as less impact of wildfires. The project will gain community support as their livestock and orchards will be safe.
