AN ESSENTIAL GUIDE ON THE UTILIZATION OF THE GODAVARI WATERS AND RESOURCES


 The RoFR act recognizes the dwelling site, religious places, burial grounds, village council sites along with places of MFP, water resources, biodiverisity etc and also PVT tenures. As the implementation boils down to title deeds for house sites and lands under cultivation, SAKTI engaged the Chenchu youth to document their traditional knowledge in their idiom and dialect, in encouraging them to assert as inborn foresters, capable of managing these resources as envisaged in the Act.


"Since SAKTI activities are mostly issue based and covering a large area, here we concentrate on the forest-related programmes of SAKTI for the present study."

 FORESTS ARE RESERVOIRS OF WATER AND LUNGS OF OUR ENVIRONMENTS.

SAVE THEM FROM MINING AND DESTRUCTION.

The bald hilltops indicate the Bauxite mineral reserves: 

Bauxite will be exploited by strip mining. A power shovel bites into the forests, soils, laterite and bauxite, piling up rows of soil and laterite on one hand and bauxite ore on the other hand. in this process the Eastern ghats forest land will be land bare. It may produce stream fouling sediment. When the minings carried out on a length of 125km, and width of 15 km. the destruction of forest and soil is enormous. This results in destroying of entire preexisting ecosystem and habitat. The environmental devastation, to be produced by the strip mining of bauxite in Eastern Ghats is expected to exceed in quantity and intensity any other form of man made land destruction.
