Climate Change Adaptation (2011-2014)
The project, in partnership with the Australian Agency for International Development, aims to address a crucial dimension of vulnerabilities by supporting specific activities to enhance climate change induced risk management capacities (adaptation, disaster mitigation and risk reduction) in districts across flood-prone areas of Odisha and drought-prone areas of Madhya Pradesh.
Conservation and Sustainable use of Gulf of Mannar Biosphere Reserve's Coastal Biodiversity (2002-2013)
The Gulf of Mannar Biosphere Reserve, home to one of the world’s richest concentrations of marine species is under threat as a result of habitat destruction, over-harvesting of marine resources and civic pollution. In response to the threat, this project, in partnership with the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India, funded by Global Environment Facility, demonstrates the possibilities of sustainable community-led conservation of coastal areas, and integration of conservation activities in coastal zone management plans.
