We continued to support eco-tourism in a collabora¬tive project with the Tamil Nadu Forest Department – The Tamil Nadu Biodiversity Conservation and Greening Project. The project involves evolving an eco tourism circuit in the Kotagiri area including the villages of Banagudi, Kodanadu and the Longwood Watch Dog Committee. A Eco-tourism Management Committee was constituted with representatives from all stakeholders. A microplan for activities under the project was submitted during the year. Several capacity building programmes and a publicity campaign was organized to strengthen the project.
