The Collector Dr.Mishra had looked at the GO-NGO Collaboration and had instructed to take up various NRM, Livelihood and Social Security programmes to make these villages as truly Ecovillages which would be examples in the area. Our Ecovillages have basically two pillars – Family Farm for each Household and Development of Commons managed by Women. A message has been given to one and all in Nabarangapur District that the Collector Dr. Mishra believes in communicating directly with the Villagers in the field and taking decisions on the spot for the tangible development. A Collaborative Framework among all stakeholders- Community, PRIs, the Government and the NGO- has been established. This exercise can be extended to many villages of the district.
