As The Chief Functionary of GVS, I could classify my working experience related to inter-disciplinary matters of Bio-diversity as below:
At Organisation and Reporting Level:
I have been associated with field based and policy level work in relation to inter-disciplinary matters of bio-diversity since 1999. As our area is a perpetually water-starved, empowering marginal and small farmers and farm work force from time to time about daunting droughts and their impact on livelihoods is a key activity we undertake; Out of every nine years period we have had to bear the brunt of droughts at least seven years i.e. 78 per cent of the duration. This is not an uncommon phenomenon in semi-arid tropical area (Rayalaseema Region of Andhra Pradesh State of India) where we live and work.

At Field Level:
In view of this recurring slow, silent and man-made constant disaster, impacts compounded by soil/land degradation due to indiscriminate use of agro-chemicals; forcing marginalized people to embrace perils of poverty throughout the calendar year leading to urban migration to growth centers/towns/cities to toil for their daily bread.
To halt this trend, I have been forming farmers Self-Help Groups. And these groups are being enriching in use of Low External Inputs and Sustainable Agriculture (LEISA) concepts and interventions to elevate the status of their piece of farm land’s texture, structure and health.

The LEISA technologies are being practiced to mitigate the impacts of Biodiveristy loss:
1. Land preparation
2. Water/Moisture conservation
3. Revitalization of traditional knowledge
4. Application of bio-fertilisers/pesticides/fungicides
5. Application of tank silt
6. Bund and block plantation with tree species.
