Skill Development and Community Science Programmes
Self-Help Groups

We promote science-based ecosystem restoration and skill development programmes for self-help groups that support conservation efforts and enhance livelihood opportunities. Here is a brief overview of some of the programmes:

Sustainable Agriculture | Pollinators | Organic Farming

We organise training programmes for professionals working in the agriculture sector on sustainable farming practices. We promote training programmes on scientific beekeeping and production of quality honey for local community members in rural areas.

Skill development in eco-friendly products and sustainable waste management practices

We promote skill development initiatives for women self-help groups to make eco-friendly goods and bags as an alternative to plastic products and thus support the efforts to reduce plastic pollution. We also encourage science-based educational and learning programmes to further strengthen nature conservation efforts.

Community programmes and skill development initiatives in the Western Ghats

We promote skill development and training programmes on low-cost sustainable technologies such as fuel-efficient cook-stoves and agro-processing devices for energy efficiency. These technologies help in further strengthening forest conservation efforts.

Community programmes and skill development initiatives in the Indian Himalayan Region

Our work is focused on pollinators, sustainable agriculture, forests and ecosystem services. We are promoting skill development and training programmes for self-help groups in apiculture practices and conserving habitat for bee flora.
