From ‘Slash and Burn’ to Sustainability

“Earlier the land earned us barely enough to live on,” says Atula, a woman farmer from the north-eastern state of Nagaland. “Now I make INR 400 to 450 (US$7.20 to $8.20) a week selling vegetables in the local market.” 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. These practices have helped Atula grow healthier crops and earn better income. [Photo: Zubeni Lotha/UNDP India]
