Community Ownership and Institutional Mechanisms to Develop CPRs and Enhance Livelihoods
INGP31 - The Kavalas Way
This good practice shows that community led development of Common Property Resources through local ownership and institutional mechanisms greatly enhances livelihoods of livestock keepers especially the poor, landless and Below Poverty Line families. The practice helped improve the environment by reducing soil degradation and increasing soil moisture and vegetation.
In succession, this resulted into increased biomass in terms of quantity and quality and thus the overall year around fodder situation improved. The improved fodder situation led to more output per animal and subsequently more animal products for home consumption and sales.
Overall, it also contributed to an improved nutritional status of village communities.
