From ‘Slash and Burn’ to Sustainability

Atula, a woman farmer from Mokokchung in India’s north-eastern state of Nagaland with her produce from jhum cultivation, a form of agricultural practice where families cultivate land for a few years, typically two years, after which the land is abandoned. Atula has also supplemented her income by as much as INR 12,500 by selling five piglets from her newly set up piggery enterprise within the last one year through the integrated livelihood activities introduced as part of the project.
