The Greens of Garo by Divya Bhardwaj

The Greens of Garo captures the vision and the spirit behind the unique initiative of putting aside village community land as Village Reserve Forests by two hundred tribal villages of Garo Hills, Meghalaya, which has resulted in wild life and habitat conservation and in the affirmation of indigenous rights over community-controlled resources, among other positive impacts.
