The challenges common to mountain regions included reducing poverty, strengthening resilience, achieving gender equality, and safeguarding mountain ecosystems. Building capacity to promote sustainable development of mountain communities and ecosystems is one of our primary activity. Capacity building efforts are primarily focussed on our thematic areas: Strengthening Livelihoods, Biodiversity Conservation, Women Empowerment. We organize training sessions and workshops annually in collaboration with several line department and agencies viz. NABARD, Horticulture Department etc. to strengthen community members’ understanding and expertise on different aspects of sustainable mountain development such as bee keeping, sericulture, gender equality etc.
