Exemplary indigenous resource management in India (#journal)

Integrated Agriculture and Allied Natural Resource Management in Northeast Mountains—Transformations and Assets Building

This study investigated human-ecosystem relationship for agriculture development using sustainable natural resource management strategies for improved livelihood in a cultural landscape inhabited of Apatani tribe in northeast India. The authors argue that social robustness, traditional institutions, and cultural obligations govern resource management. The agro-ecosystems exhibited a high ecological and economic efficiency that brings a high degree of self-sufficiency to the community. Resource management is done by village institutions through collective decisions. The integrated management of resources by Apatanis could be an exemplary model for any society to replicate.
