Saurav is the Co-Founder and Designer of Rural Futures Innovation at Balipara Foundation. Rural Futures integrates ecological gains with upward socio-economic mobility of forest-fringe communities across the Eastern Himalayan region. Saurav and his team mobilize forest-fringe communities (esp. youth) to engage in the complete value-chain of ecosystem restoration. Communities utilize the natural capital derived sustainably from the restored habitats to deliver universal basic assets - locally and autonomously. Saurav holds a master’s from the University of Manchester.
