  The Man from Wild Cat Hamlet


Damodar of Bastar is awarded the Paul K. Feyerabend award: A World of Solidarity is Possible

 

He was under the weather when we arrived, but he still welcomed us cheerfully as we entered his house.

 

This man, Damodar Kashyap, was soon to be given the Paul K Feyerabend award for community solidarity. He was being given the award for his commitment to forest protection. As a young educated man, he returned to his village  Karmari, Bastar in the heart of tribal India only to be devastated by the scene of forest destruction that he found there. Forests mean so much to the Bhatara people since 6 months of the year the community fully depends on forests for sustenance.

  All set for Madhu Duniya 2015!

Madhu Duniya, the largest gathering of Asian Forest Honey producers, scientists, supporters and private sector players in the world, is held every four years. It aims to gather various stakeholders to discuss growing trends, challenges and opportunities and share technical and practical knowledge and expertise on forest honey. It seeks to be the platform to promote forest honey as crucial for rural incomes, key for forest conservation and as important for human health around the world and in Asia. 

 

Madhu Duniya was held in India (2007) and in Indonesia (2011) and has resulted in the formation of forest honey networks in at least 5 Asian countries, forging of government permits for forest honey gatherers, inspiring ongoing research on honey for health and medical benefits, and successfully linking private sector partners and producers.
