This in turn helps in mainstreaming the community by enhancing educational opportunities and telecommunication accessibility. The model demonstrated here has significant potential for replication and there are opportunities for further collaboration amongst the various stakeholders.”"
"We felt that it was our duty and responsibility to inform the Kaziranga authorities about the carcass and guard the horn till the forest officials reached the spot. We were disappointed, however, that the Director or the DFO of Kazirangadid not call us and thank us for our support" , said a group of thevillagers from Gamrighat
...Mark Pettigrew of Pepsico says: "I like the Cool Farm Tool because it's not a black box. With other tools you… just pay for the study and are delivered the results. This is a better way of engaging."
"We are working towards a viable alternative to the mechanized van rickshaws that currently run on diesel and kerosene and are extremely polluting. Battery operated electric van rickshaws have already undergone road trials for a year. They are both versatile and viable."
