Conceptual framework for eco-development including community based eco-tourism & its application in Satkosia Gorge sanctuary

This document addresses three of the four Biodiversity Conservation Components in terms of providing policy and methodological guidance on eco-development, including ecotourism, and mitigation of humanwildlife conflicts. This is complemented by a conceptual framework and action plan for their practical application in Satkosia Gorge, the sanctuary where participatory micro-planning processes for ecodevelopment at the village level have been initiated on priority under the Orissa Forest Sector Development Project (OFSDP).
