Project Proposal for Immediate Ecological Restoration

Objectives of the project :

To begin preparatory work for the restoration of the coastal belt in the Auroville tsunami rehabilitation programme area.

This micro-project will serve as a pilot project for a proposed two-year ecological restoration project to be carried out in the programme area. Preliminary investigations will be carried out into the options available for an ecological restoration project in the area. The micro-project will allow nursery work to begin as well as initial participatory land use mapping to take place.

  1. Planned activities :

A number of these activities already began in February in order to avoid missing an important window of opportunity for seed collection during this period of the year. In addition, plans are under way to begin the participatory land use exercises, with formal contact already made with all of the Paalams. The activities outlined above will provide the necessary feedback to inform the drawing up of the two-year project.
