Spreading the word
We hope to expand this initiative in three villages of Nagaland, not only to neighbouring villages in the Satakha area of Zunheboto but to other villages across Nagaland. We hope to develop a policy on community-conserved areas of Nagaland that recognises the self-initiated conservation efforts of local communities. We hope that with funding in the future, we can carry out more research, more surveys, more training programmes and explore more biodiversity-based livelihood options including Payments for Ecosystem Services. Most of all, we do hope that YOU will spread the word on this initiative and encourage your friends and family to visit. Please also support the programme by sponsoring forest guards or by supporting a village. Write in and share your ideas with us.
