Community Conserved Areas or CCAs are now an internationally recognized phenomenon. This Directory is the world’s first country-wide compilation and analysis of CCAs. It describes a diversity of initiatives, attempting to gain a deeper understanding of conservation of biological diversity, local livelihoods, peoples’ rights and development, through around 140 case studies across 23 Indian states.
This Directory hopes to strengthen the efforts of communities conserving their wildlife and natural resources all over the country.
