Community Forest II
Reviving a Himalayan Forest in Uttarakhand
Located in Village Satoli, Uttarakhand, North India, these common lands are an integral part of rural mountain life and a major source of fuel and fodder for these communities.
By reviving these degraded rural commons, we can add real value to the region by securing basic livelihoods of local people and reviving native biodiversity.
