Summary

Aims to combine alien invasive Lantana camara removal with restoration of cleared areas using a Green Economy model involving the local communities. The model envisages participation of the local community members in the lantana removal and restoration activities, and more importantly in sustainable and market-linked alternate livelihood options based on the removed lantana, such as lantana craft and lantana bio-char making.
