Development of Village Institutions for Equitable & Sustainable Access to Natural Resources
This Good Practice Note illustrates the practice of local institutional development and its role in pro-poor livestock development in the context of village Jhabla in Udaipur district of Rajasthan in the western part of India.
The work initiated by Seva Mandir in late 1980s has borne fruit as after two decades it demonstrates its robustness in gripping local community dynamics and assisting in providing better opportunities for livestock rearing. It highlights the need to reconsider inclusion of communities in governing their natural resources especially the forests and open pasture lands, which is a step in the right direction.
