Assam promotes participatory eco-learning through Nature Conservation Clubs

Case study 16 March 2022, 13:18 GMT

Assam, the most populous north-eastern state of India, is situated in the foothills of the eastern Himalayas. The southwest monsoon that showers average annual rainfall of 1807.1 millimetres or more, along with the state’s unique topography, creates a conducive environment to support its rich bio-diversity. The changing climate challenges the developmental journey as the state's large population depends on agriculture and forests for livelihood. 

The Nature Learning Centre (NLC), Assam, was implemented during the period 2018-2021 with a motto of capacity building of various stakeholders on nature conservation through a holistic and coordinated effort to create an enabling environment for nature-based learning and sustainable developmental action to mitigate the impacts of climate change in the region.

The NLC, through its exclusive school-level initiative, Nature Conservation Club (NCC) carried out several interactive learning programmes, practical activity-based learning, and exposure visits to reserved forests. The centre also produced audio-visual training material and reading materials for different stakeholders to promote nature conservation for sustainable development and climate adaptation. The majority of the activities targeted the students and the community living in and around the fringes of the protected forests.
