The purpose of this research paper is to establish an integrated approach towards sustainable living for the community people residing in a river island which is ecologically sensitive and vulnerable to natural hazards. Suvarna river which is an eminent source of sediment disposal along the coastal belts of Karnataka, comprises of fifteen braided islands that had been evolved through ages by avulsion. Timman Kudru is one of the river island located towards the estuarine mouth of Suvarna river with spellbound locale adding to the sensuous beauty to the seascape. Despite of its natural breathtaking beauty and its tranquil environment that catch holds the eyes of a visitor, it is vulnerable to damaging impacts like climate change, sea level rise, intense tropical storms and river floods. The island comes under CRZ-I which restricts any construction and development within the island as it is eco-sensitive and vulnerable to morphological changes owing to floods and soil erosion. The community of people residing in the island over years are not benefitted with any developmental schemes to improve their livelihood and well-being. The study aims to comprehensively address the sustainable ecofriendly practices to the threats faced by the island. The paper concludes with a set of guidelines formulated after identifying the issues and analyzing the base situation in the island followed by the regulations of CRZ and proposing a broad developmental proposal for the betterment of living of residing community people
