About The Organization

Registered under the Societies Registration Act XXI 1860, the Foundation for Ecological Security was set up in 2001 to reinforce the massive and critical task of ecological restoration in the country. The Foundation strives for a future that is based on a holistic understanding of the principles that govern the interrelationships of various life forms and natural systems. The essence of these efforts lies in intertwining principles of nature conservation and local self-governance in order to accelerate ecological restoration, as well as improve the living conditions of the poor.

FES works towards the ecological restoration and conservation of land and water resources, in the uplands and other eco-fragile, degraded and marginalized zones of the country and to set in place the processes of coordinated human effort and governance. We work in 5 eco-regions of India with 1,526 Village institutions in 27 districts across six states and about a million households in protecting 107,094 hectares of revenue wastelands, degraded forestlands and Panchayat grazing lands (Charagah lands). FES is probably the only organization that works on Commons at this scale.

As ecological security is the foundation of sustainable and equitable development, the Foundation for Ecological Security (FES) is committed to strengthening, reviving or restoring, where necessary, the process of ecological succession and the conservation of land, forest and water resources in the country.

To this end FES:

Works towards the ecological restoration and conservation of land and water resources, in the uplands and other eco-fragile, degraded and marginalized zones of the country and to set in place the processes of co-ordinated human effort and governance to this end;

Undertakes work either directly, or with and through a range of democratic village institutions, their federal bodies, and civil society organizations, set up through initiatives that are ecologically sustainable, socially and economically equitable and provide relief to the poor, in particular;

Ensures the ecological integrity of all efforts by working, as far as possible, with entire landscapes, and with all the interrelated communities within it, through a range of arrangements on their land and aquatic resources, whether Commons, Public or Private;

Works for and promote stability of the ecosystems through the protection and restoration of biological diversity, including the diversity of species, age diversity, genetic variability as well as that of structural composition;

Collaborates with Panchayat Raj and other democratic village institutions, as well as appropriate civil society organizations, in their efforts to contribute towards the objectives of the Society, and to provide technical and financial assistance to them.
