NTFP Desks

Over the years various “Desks” have been established within the network. Each Desk concentrates on a particular NTFP and is held by a partner who has expertise in that particular field. The focus is to develop new techniques and tools for value addition about the NTFP, provide information on its ecology, training on use, sustainable harvesting methods, traditional practices, markets, etc. Some Desks are in place since 3-4 years , and new ones are proposed:

  1. Fibre Desk – Prakruti
  2. Wild Honey Desk – Keystone Foundation
  3. Gums and Resins Desk – Kovel Foundation
  4. Lac Desk – RCDC
  5. Mahua Desk – LEAF and PRERAK
  6. Sal Desk – Gram Swaraj
  7. Bamboo Desk – Econet
