Call for Papers
After the extensive work of Millennium Ecosystem Assessment, there has been significant increase in institutional interventions to conserve the natural ecosystems and to restore the loss to the ecosystems, wherever possible, so that the ecosystem services start benefi ting the people, especially the population at the margins. In India, interventions under developmental schemes like MGNREGA and climate adaptation/mitigation schemes are directly contributing to restoration of ecosystems and natural resource base of rural areas. However, the ultimate impact of these schemes on well-being of people is yet to be showcased. This seminar intends to showcase such evidences, if any.
