Abstract

The MSSR Foundation aims to expedite modern science and technology for rural agricultural development and sustainability. They have been officially working as a Foundation for nearly thirty-five years now but have worked much longer than that. Their groundbreaking work in Indian Mangrove restoration has also been pivotal to the sustenance of the Indian coastal ecosystems, land, and livelihood. They also empower local women to pick up the mantle after them, which has indeed been nothing short of heroic. This paper tries to summarize some of the great work through their many years of service. It focuses on their innovative means to calculate Pmax in Pichavaram, their gendered studies on adverse climate effects on people, and how
different birth genders react to them. This paper only briefly talks about the different ways the Foundation has been using to reclaim abandoned land and put it to good use. This paper is only a glimpse of work done for one month. Although not all facts are presented below, they are some examples to demonstrate the incredible work the Foundation has done.
