Enabling communities to take collective decisions
As forests, pastures and water bodies are shared by human settlements and require inter-village cooperation, FES works with contiguous villages and traditional forms of local self-governance institutions and nests them within Panchayats to gain formal recognition, to create the institutional apparatus for debate and dialogue at a block or landscape level.
We assist rural communities by:
● Reviving rules and regulations for the governance of shared natural resources
● Helping secure legal rights to access and manage their Commons
● Creating a platform where districts and states recognise and address local needs
