The present toolkit on ‘Coastal Biovillages’ has been prepared based on practical experiences gained by M.S.Swaminthan Research Foundation from Biovillage projects conducted since 1991 in the villages of Pondicherry and later in the coastal villages of Pichavaram and Gulf of Mannar regions of Tamil Nadu.

In this tool kit, section one to seven gives useful guidelines covering various essential aspects for the Biovillage practitioners, followed by the annexure, which gives details of selected interventions in the areas of fisheries, agriculture and market driven microenterprises with a few illustrations. These guidelines and ideas given in the toolkit may not entirely suit to the situation of your own, but still it helps you to learn and use some of them to your own field conditions. If you have suitable examples and stories they could be also appropriately integrated in the process.
