I have uploaded a paper presented at an e-Government conference held in October 2005 at The Grand, Vasant Kunj, New Delhi. The Conference "Conflux 2005" was a joint effort by Centre for Science, Development and Media Studies (CSDMS), Government of NCT
of Delhi along with Department of Information Technology, Government of India, UNDP, Danish Technological Institute and key academic and civil society organizations and various multilateral agencies.
The full presentation is uploaded at the following link
The paper makes a case for the potential of e-Governance for creating jobs as a major byproduct. Giving livelihood options to fringe villages of national parks seems to be the only solution for avoiding man -animal conflicts and exploitation. If the livelihood
options are related to protecting the parks, it becomes a win -win situation for conservation and people.
I am throwing the paper for a "no-holds barred discussion "by IWC members. Please do add your valuable opinions.
