Community is an inevitable part of the Eco-system and plays a definite role to maintain it. Little or no knowledge about the surrounding environment leads to unmanaged utilization of natural resources for livelihood which in turn becomes a threat as it breaks the balance in eco-system. To combat this, NEWS has been doing extensive awareness and introduced methods which are sustainable, environment friendly and indigenous. The methods are almost 100% organic. Low cost-high productivity is ensured. The community is involved, so that they can understand the necessity for the protection of the forests and the coast lines. NEWS is also trying to introduce integrated farming. In this way, not only the ecosystem is restored, but the local people are also getting benefited.
After completion of the project sustainability was the big question. To support the local people in their endeavour in maintaining the area was our prime concern. The only alternative was promoting Eco-tourism. Working in the area we experienced the awesome beauty of nature. We felt the pristine air, the inspiring presence of the mountains and felt it would be a good idea to share this beauty with like-minded nature lovers.
