Resumen

La conservación de la biodiversidad y los recursos naturales puede ayudar a ofrecer un suministro sostenible de bienes y servicios para cumplir los derechos de las personas a su desarrollo y sustento. Sin embargo, cuando se consideran los impactos sociales económicos y culturales en la población local, de la conservación ambiental ciertos resultados no son alentadores en la India (ni en todo el mundo). Los proyectos de conservación que excluyen a los habitantes de dichas áreas pueden conservar los recursos naturales hasta cierto punto, pero no el acceso a los medios de vida de estas personas. Por tanto, siendo la India un país densamente poblado no puede alentar la estrategia de "naturaleza prístina" en sus iniciativas de conservación.
