Communities and Sustainability

Communities in the Western Ghats and Eastern Himalayas have lived in and around the forests and depended on it for their livelihoods. While the tribes of the western ghats have lived there for over a millennia the communities in the Darjeeling landscape have lived there for around 150 years. ATREE with support from USAID has been working in these landscapes for over two decades to help communities lead a sustainable live.
