SHivling Peak UttaranchalThe region lies in the Central Himalayan zone of the Hindukush Himalayan Range and extending from the Gangetic Plain, it rises to around 2,500 meters. Despite the limited availability of arable land in the region, agriculture is the main occupation as majority of the population (78.30%) is in the rural areas.

The society is primarily a traditional Hindu society with a distinct ‘pahari’culture. The area’s agro-pastoral economy is still pre-dominantly subsistence based with about 50% of rural households, including the rural elite, having high dependence on village commons and forest lands. High male out-migration in search of employment makes the women left behind effective managers of the rural household economy.

Forests in region are a source of livelihood for rural residents and provide resources such as fodder, fuelwood, green manure, and construction timber.
