Natural Resource Management
Community resource management is necessary to create a balance through conservation of natural resources with people’s participation while minimizing the damage to the ecosystem. Community resource management is essential to help community members become self-reliant and maintain their human rights and well-being.
Jagran has enabled communities to create equitable and sustained access to natural resources through integrated water resource management and Composite water resource management at village level. For this Jagran has adhered to the techniques of micro-planning and capacity building with PRI, block and district level stakeholders by using hydrological & Geo-informatics tools.
Strengthening of grassroots democracy by empowering the village level committees has been the core strategy of decentralized planning. Integrated planning is done to develop assets for sustainable livelihood of both farm and non-farm opportunities. Jagran has so far facilitated community resource management for 565 villages in 28 blocks of 7 districts across 5 states of India (Rajasthan, Gujarat, U.P, Odisha and Karnataka).
