ASSOCIATION (NARAD)

Tree Plantation Project


Proposal
1) Name of Project:- Tree Plantation Project
2) Duration Of the Project-1 year
3) Timeline to start the project- July 2014 to June 2015
4) Scope of the Project:-
The mainstay of rural economy is agriculture and allied occupations, about 85 % of the rural
population are engaged in agriculture and agricultural labour. Traditional agriculture is
characterized by low level of inputs and poor management practices. These conditions further
deteriorate due to uncertain rains and lack of irrigation facilities. The proposed Tree plantation
Project aims at helping the tribals establish mix tree plantation to provide long term sustainable
income & keeping of environment balance in Dadarkopara village of Jawhar Block ,Thane
District.

5) Need for the Project: Socio Economic scenario in tribal areas like Thane
district is heavily dependent on natural resources and agriculture. While farming is one of the
main sources of self-employment, most of the small farmers and landless are also dependent on
agriculture labour opportunities, livestock and forest resources for generating employment. There
has been indiscriminate felling of trees and denudation of forest resources. This forced most of
them to migrate in search of wages. Presently, most of the small farmers, agriculture labours and
the tribals are victims of poverty, illiteracy and exploitation Therefore the sustainable livelihood
programme for rural communities needs to focus on up-gradation of available natural resources,
as well as focus on active participation of the rural families particularly women for their own
status enhancement.
6) Geography of the Proposed Project

Village/Villages –,Shivajinagar,Khiraripada,Pathardi Village


Block/Tehsil: Jawhar
District: Thane State: Maharashtra

7) Beneficiaries: number of beneficiaries :- 10 Tribal Farmer (owning Waste land)


Programme participants are selected from among the villages giving priority to the tribal
population in the operational area. The selection is based on the minimum qualifying criteria
combined with other factors such as identification of the poorest of the poor, their aptitude, their
resource base and the scope for opportunities provided by the project. The minimum qualifying
criteria used as below:
 The participant shall be selected generally from the families having land, less than or equal to 5
acres. Family is defined as a unit consisting of husband, wife and dependant children.
However, the families having land above 5 acres are also included in the programme

on satisfying either of the following two conditions:

 The land is owned by a joint family and the share of each member of the participating family is
less than 5 acres, and the family is below subsistence level or
The participation of such a family shall be socially beneficial to the programme implementation, provided
however, the participant shall be entitled to the programme support limited to financing the planting
material. The justification of including such families shall be documented and be verifiable. The total
number of families being promoted under this provision shall be limited to 1% of the total number of
families being promoted

9) Impact on implementation of this project on a


longer run.
The Tree plantation programme is called the WADI The socio-economic rehabilitation of poor
rural families has become possible through development of wastelands into productive assets by
plantation of fruit trees.

The WADI programme is based on farming - system approach that includes Horticultures & Frest
tree on small plots separately.

The programme is planned with the family as a unit. The intensive utilization of land and water
resources helps to generate self- employment opportunities throughout the year. The components
are need based and tailor made to ensure that the family will be rehabilitated by the end of the
gestation period of Three years. At the end of this period, the horticulture plantations become
productive and the income from these and inclusion of agriculture helps the rural family to rise
above the poverty line on a sustainable basis.

After the family joins the programme they do not feel the need to migrate to the nearby towns as
self employment is available at village level throughout the year. In addition, there are intangible
benefits in the form of family welfare, improved nutrition and health.

Each participant family takes up intensive land development and plantation work on one acre (0.4
ha) of wasteland or marginal land, to convert this into a productive (WADI).

The species to be planted are chosen according to their suitability to the project area, their income
generation potential and the preferences of the participating family. The saplings are provided
critical watering during summer months in the first few years to enable their proper
establishment.

in time otherwise the plant wouldn’t get sufficient length during plantation
13) Risks in this project If monsoon will not arrive in time then the
plantation activity will be postponed
