Besides exploring the traditional knowledge of the local forest fringe village dwellers regarding livelihood opportunities and local rural development as a whole, the team emphasized on various measures of Natural Resource management. As the organization, Krishnaa Human Initiatives, aims to play a significant role in augmentation of livelihood opportunities for the people at grassroots-level through natural resource management, the team suggested some viable methods which can easily be adopted by the local women self-help groups of the said AILA stricken villages. And the groups cordially welcome the suggestions by the team.
