The future with communities, livelihoods, nature-centred economy, biodiversity, education and natural resources is Rural Futures and thereby, an equitable and just future. Rural Futures is Balipara Foundation’s flagship framework aimed at demonstrating that a Naturenomics™ driven economy is both viable and suitable for communities in the long run.
The power to make a difference lies within us all. Nothing could demonstrate this fact more clearly than the recipients of this year’s Balipara Foundation Awards – ordinary men and women with extraordinary achievements.
