In Pursuit of Sustainability

I have been engaged in grassroots initiatives mainly focusing on conservation, social entrepreneurship and education over the last twelve years.  I recently initiated “Community Sustainable Development Initiatives” a platform on which I have carried on with offering  leadership and expertise in conceptualizing, implementing and governance of various sustainable livelihoods and conservation initiatives in communities. Working closely with communities and other stakeholders, CSDI has implemented projects focused on:

  • Community Education for Sustainability,
  • Biodiversity & Ecosystem Conservation,
  • Climate Change Adaptation
  • Media productions

 A number of social, economic and environmental benefits   accrue on communities particularly the rural and urban poor; when sustainable development goals are observed in various aspects of their livelihoods and local development processes.
