The RuFu® Lab was launched in 2020 in Baligaon Green Village in Sonitpur district, Assam. With a community dedicated to sustainability, the Lab is an experiment in sustainable agroforestry and natural asset creation for sustainable revenue towards creating Universal Basic Assets, such as education and healthcare.

The controlled environment of Baligaon green village in Sonitpur district of Assam has been the best site with solid research case studies to architect the first RuFu lab. The RuFu lab aims to create monitored soil-water-air sustainable revenue models over thirty years. Through this pilot programme, we aim to test the Rural Futures hypothesis of Universal Basic Assets for the forest fringe communities, through the enhancement of our Natural Assets.
