Forest Based Livelihood

Given the rich bio-diversity of the North-eastern region and high dependence of the population on its forest for meeting livelihood requirement, management and sustainable use cannot be overlooked. Balancing conservation and livelihoods to meet the needs of rural communities on a sustainable basis is the main objective under forest based livelihoods. NEIDA therefore, focuses on activities that promote profitable forest-based livelihood activities that are sustainable, and enhance the knowledge of the communities on conservation of the natural resources.

The following strategies are followed under this intervention, namely:

  1. Promote profitable forest-based livelihood activities that are sustainable and encourage conservation
  2. Promote activities that will indirectly motivate farmers to protect forest
  3. Knowledge enhancement of communities on sustainable forest management and conservation of natural resources
  4. Identify overall contribution of forests through obtained goods and services and develop strategies for maintaining or enhancing such contribution
