Mohda Eco Resort, Barnawapara Wildlife Sanctuary, Chattisgarh - October 2008EQUATIONS' work across many parts of India has been in the areas of awareness building, research, campaign and advocacy by identifying issues related to tourism and establishing strong network alliances to work on tourism issues. EQUATIONS has attempted to respond to requests and support local groups in their endeavour for a form of tourism that is people-centred, equitable, just and sustainable.

The Government of Chhattisgarh, a newly formed state at that time, in the bid to adopt an integrated approach to the economic development of the state, saw tourism as a tool to contribute to sustainable development. The Chhattisgarh Tourism Board (CTB) proposed an 'Integrated Development' through 'Tourism Process' in the state. We were approached by the CTB to develop this 'Plan' based on 'Sustainable Tourism Management Plans'. This provided us the opportunity to provide a framework for assessment and planning processes at the state level and segment wise implementation of sustainable tourism plans for built-cultural heritage, traditional art heritage and natural heritage. This was a consultancy project under the 'Integrated development through Tourism process' proposals for Upgradation Grants and Special Problem Grants under XII Finance Commission for Chhattisgarh Tourism Board in 2003.

Views of Jungle Resort, Achanamkar Wildlife Sanctuary, Chhattisgarh - October 2008Research along with the film team of 'Mahua Memoirs' helped us in contacting groups, movements and activists in the central Indian states and gain a firsthand understanding of the tourism issues that impacted them.

In December 2006, we invited partners from Uttarakhand, Chhattisgarh, Madhya Pradesh and the Andaman & Nicobar Islands for a workshop to discuss the preliminary findings on a paper on financial incentives for ecotourism development and its impacts on community based conservation initiatives. Following this,  in January 2007, EQUATIONS co-organised with Chhattisgarh based Nadi Ghati Morcha a workshop on 'Tourism Development in Chhattisgarh: Threats and Challenges'. The workshop was situated at a critical juncture when the state government had just unleashed its new tourism policy that proposed intense tourism promotion through infrastructure strengthening and promotion of ecotourism, ethnic tourism and adventure tourism. Well attended by community representatives from most districts of the state, including panchayat leaders, women and officials from the CTB, the workshop focussed on analysing the tourism policy and critiquing its development.

We also co-organised consultations partnering with local NGOs and groups in January 2009 on the theme of 'Protection of Peoples Rights and Conservation of Forests' and 'Wildlife in Wildlife Sanctuaries and National Parks' at Raipur, Chhattisgarh, as well as Madhya Pradesh (Bandhavgarh and Kanha). The Raipur consultation dealt with forest rights and implementation of FRA and environmental and social issues related to tourism. The discussions also focused on the gaps in current tourism and ecotourism policy of the state and also future plans and proposals of the government.
