  Summary

 

 

-The goal of this project was to reverse the deleterious erosion process taking place in a small fishing community in Andhra Pradesh. The deterioration of this costal eco-system threatened to greatly damage the livelihood and local economy of the villages it supported. The implementation strategy for this project was two sided. The first objective was to collect data regarding the land use pattern along the coast, as well as the effect that industrialization is having on the costal land and water bodies. After a sufficient amount of baseline data was collected, the strategy changed to intervention, both in terms of public policy, as well as workshops for local community members. The idea behind the public policy intervention was to advocate for regulations that would create sustainable environmental and economic conditions for the impacted villages. The strategy for the workshops was to educate the villagers as to how to adjust their lifestyles in order to make them environmentally sustainable.
