From ‘Slash and Burn’ to Sustainability

Atula’s family, along with the 4,000 other households in the project villages of the north-eastern state of Nagaland have witnessed a 15 to 20 percent increase in their average income. Atula has also started to raise pigs, feeding them recycled crop fodder and using the manure in turn to fertilize her crops. This has been made possible as a result of a joint programme between UNDP and Nagaland government that has introduced sustainable land management practices in her village.
