Foundation for Ecological Security (FES) works towards the ecological restoration and conservation of land and water resources in ecologically fragile and degraded regions of the country through the concerted and collective action of rural communities. FES's work with land, water and people is governed by a deep appreciation of inter relationships – inter relationships between natural and human systems, different ecosystems within a landscape and different elements within an ecosystem. By valuing these interlinkages, FES attempts to catalyze collective action, access economic opportunity and ensure the resilience of both, rural endeavour and natural endowments.
