Abstract

The fruits of economic development have not been percolated down to the tribes and marginalized communities, in full extent. In the Indian experience, neither half a century’s economic planning nor official communal reservation mandates helped to better their lot. Myriads of schemes are being announced and launched to address the social economic well-being of the tribe communities in the national and regional levels. In this backdrop, a case study was done based on the experience of a participatory bio-diversity conservation programme initiated in a well-known Protected Area in India. The study discloses that how marginalized indigenous communities, through institutionalization and decentralized decision making, developed equations for symbiotic livelihood security and biodiversity conservation.
