To discuss livelihood and ecological concerns related to our forests, the Centre organises Keepers of Forests: Judiciary, Ministry, or Community, hosting six sessions on resource management, allocation, ownership and use. The objective is to assess the real problems and conclude affordable and long-term policy solutions to prevent the over-use and mismanagement of our natural goods.
This summit is organized to take the idea of community ownership and management of natural resources to a wider audience. The discussions and seminars focus on key resources: forests, fisheries, wildlife. The seminar is aimed at activists, policy makers and academicians.
The Centre hosts a National Conference on Primary Education for the Indo-Dutch Programme on Alternatives in Development (IDPAD). Eminent activists, policy makers, and academics present, discuss, and debate innovations in government delivery of education, role of new technologies, barriers to the entry of educational institutions, methods of assuring quality of education, and decentralisation of curricula and textbook authorship.
