To make these committee functional and effective we will do facilitation for coordination among community and forest department. Other project activities are construction of compost pit for demonstration purpose for rural farmers, vegetable seeds, fruit plants, small timber plant etc. A resource centre will be developed for community to learn and adopt. The centre will provide education, skills and linkages to local community for their livelihood and the community will take self initiatives for forest and wildlife conservation.
