LOCATION

Khasi forest known as the wettest place on earth, Meghalaya is home to some of the Khasi Hills. Protecting it in the long term goes hand in hand with the entrepreneurial empowerment of communities. The East Khasi Hills form part of the Meghalaya subtropical forests ecoregion and is considered as one of the rich biodiversity centres of the Indian subcontinent bioregion . Our restoration efforts are focused on the Umiam Watershed: the area of intervention covers a range of 27,000 hectares, with hills that rise to more than 1,800m. The project office is in the Mawphlang Village, about 23 kilometers from Shillong.

PROJECT SUMMARY

Restoration activities involve assisted natural regeneration methods and planting of trees (low densities) to fill forest gaps and regener- ate forest fragments. WeForest works directly with a Federation of 10 indigenous governments and 62 Khasi villages who contribute with women-run nurseries and awareness raising programs run by youth volunteers. India is one of the world’s largest polluters and has drafted a national policy aimed at reducing its carbon emissions from deforestation as part of a global scheme which financially rewards developing nations for carbon stored through forest preservation (Source Reuter).

COMMUNITY

We Forest work directly with a Federation of 10 indigenous governments and 62 Khasi villages who are concerned about the extent of deforesta- tion that threatens their natural resources and livelihoods. Since 2010, supported by the Community Forestry International, the Federation has engaged in community-mitigation through a REDD+ initiative. WeForest is supporting the local communities in livelihood development through women-run nurseries, the development of ecotourism for the historic Scott trail, the Mawphlang training and Interpretive centre and aware- ness raising programmes run by youth volunteers.

WeForest will plant a tree for every $300 spent at Furnish Plus.
