1. Introduction: Hello everybody, welcome to my class of environmental studies. In this class we will talk about the deforestation in the context of tribal life. Firstly, we will talk about what deforestation is, what are the causes of deforestation, and then the consequences of default station. After this, we'll talk about who the tribals are, how they use forest resources, and what is the impact of deforestation on dragons. In the end, I will talk about the various courses of actions that can help us to deal with this problem. Sensitive towards environment, and want to know more about forest live and travel life. Then this class, as far you, if you feel that default is station doesn't affect anyone's livelihood, answer cavity. And then you must watch this class and loan how deforestation affects livelihood of tribals. After this class, you will show any notice a change in your thoughts towards environment and intern in your actions. This class will also change your perspective towards tribal life and their livelihood. So let's get started. 2. Deforestation: Let us first talk about deforestation. Default institution is a permanent removal of trees to make a room for something. Besides voiced, this then include clearing the land for agriculture or grazing, using the bingo fuel, construction or manufacturing. According to World Wildlife Fund foreign scholar, more than tactical zone of the old slums of this idea. These photos did areas can provide food, medicine, and fuel for more than a billion people. Voted right, forests provide 13.4 million people with jobs in the forest sector, and another 41 million people have jobs related to forest. Today, most deforestation is happening in the tropics. Areas that were inaccessible in the past are now within reach as new rows are constructed through the dense bodies. Let us not talk about the causes deforestation. Deforestation causes can either be direct or indirect. Among valid causes are the national causes such as hurricanes, fires, parasites, am floods, and the human activities such as agricultural expansion, cattle breeding, embed extraction, mining, oil extraction, dam construction, and infrastructure development. Among indirect causes are insufficient political actions angle and ends paleo as inadequate land tenure system, corruption, wrong public administration, investments, quality couldn't, I'm social, economic causes such as population growth, military conflicts, and climatic changes. The main causes of deforestation can actually relate back especially do forced the substitution of forest areas with continuations and greeting. Second, estimate extraction. Third, firewood collection and Fort Road and infrastructure construction. Let us now talk about the consequences of deforestation and the various environmental effects of deforestation are first, loss of habitat. One of the most dangerous and unsettling effects of deforestation is the loss of animal and plant species due to the loss of everyday 70 wasn of land animals and plant species live in forest. Not only those deepwater station threatened species known to us, but also those unknown. Second, increased greenhouse gases. In addition to the loss of habitat, that lack of trees also allows a great amount of greenhouse gases to be released into the atmosphere. Healthy forests absorb carbon dioxide from the MOSFET, acting as renewable goblins and default is ten, areas lose that ability and release more carbon. Third, water in the atmosphere. That tree is also control the level of water in that mosfet by helping to regulate the water cycle. In deforested areas, there is less water in the air to be returned to the soil. This then causes drier soil and the ability to grow crops. 4t, sine erosion and flooding. Further effects of deforestation in glued soil erosion and coastal flooding. Tree is head the land to retain water and topsoil, which provides that its nutrients to sustain and national forests life without FADH is the soil and rushes away farmers to move on and perpetuate the cycle. The baton land which has lagged behind the rake of D, is unsustainable. Agricultural practices is then more susceptible to flooding, especially in the coastal regions. Now, the first one is destruction of homeland as large amount of forest are clear of the alloying exposure, ode to witness and die, and the habitats of innumerable species to be destroyed. The indigenous communities who lived there and depend on the Florida is to sustain their way of life. Also under trade, the loss of forest has an immediate and direct effect on their lives day as R0 in the highly industrialized parts of the world, despite of our own dependency on what that reinforces provides, we'll never know. The Government of nations with rain forest in their borders often attempt to indigenous tribes before the actual clear-cutting begins. This is one of the preemptive effect of deforestation. 3. Tribals: Let us now talk about who the tribals are. It is a commoner D, of indigenous people. These gropes at least affected by modern processes of development. Vb g, that is deliberative traveled gropes in India are geographically isolated and relatively cut off from the mainstream culture and can exhibit backwardness in terms of socioeconomic and educational pedometers. Then I'm more than 500 tribal groups in India. Now I will give you the example of about seven tribes of India, along with the names of states in which this deliberately. So the first one is p-type. The states are chapters Gut, good shot, can Napa, multiple dij, Maharashtra under predation and Rogers time. Second one is moonshot tried. The states are chalcogen, shut Tesco matter, British or ISA, triple-A, and West Bengal. The third one is god tribe. The states are Chattanooga and sharpen Bihar, Orissa, westbound Wal Mart, Deborah dish, and Uttar Pradesh. The fourth one is coconut tried. The states are goods rat, Maharashtra, Karnataka, that is tan, data and another Harvey. The fifth one is sometime crime. The state, Assam, Bihar chapters go sharpen or ISA and West Bengal. The sixth one is Baha'i core walk, right? The state is chipped as good. The seventh one is going to drive. The states are matter Pradesh, Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Gujarat, hearken, Karnataka, Telangana, Uttar Pradesh, western gone arrow visa. Now I will talk about how the drivers make use of the forest sources. How did life that's connected with the forest travels Do Not emission lines the forest produce. They use them for their domestic conduction. Travels. Not only use the forest as a resource for fulfilling the basic needs, but they also use it as a means of livelihood. Recollect nature produced such as dry and fallen would for few, small, nimble bamboos, Nuts, Berries, bones, hide, fins, and hubs, etcetera, as a source of income for systematic collection and sale of such minor produces. A number of cooperative societies and corporations have been formed in several states of India. Besides connection and sale of force produced, tribals also commonly follow occupations in an announced bodies, such as agriculture, categorizing, poultry farming, transport of logs and nimble collection of graphs, et cetera. As a means of agricultural methods. Some triremes, you're shifting going deviation, which is using lands on hillsides, lands temporarily leaves to them by the forest department. In this pattern of cultivation, valuable tree growth is cut down to clear the land for growing crops. It is a state of transition from food gathering to the food growing for hunting, travels and impose a on themselves not to hunt certain kinds of birds and animals. Insurgencies in odd idea, the fondest offers varieties of Betty's notched honey, fruits, and roots travels no, which are edible, where they are valued and for how long? For example, they know how to distinguish between a poisonous and a non-poisonous edible mushroom, which grows abundantly in the rainy season. Travels living in India fall is use leaves, heights, spins, bouts, and phi bows to cover their bodies. This provides Dembo, vote stones, read slates, grass, polls, games, and related building materials foreshadow two types. The honor means worn by the woman and also by the men, and made from seeds and my bones, haunts shells and names. These unmade in the form of earrings, necklace, bandages, etcetera. The tribals have good knowledge of therapeutic value of various plants, reads and hubs for them medicinal use. Deforestation affects traveling people in many ways than unable to carry out their two additional ways, live under Homeland is often destroyed. It can affect their food and water sources. Deforestation is when trees are cut down for things such as lodging and tribes live and dead rain forest. They live like ancestors by hunting for their own food. The do not have all the modern technology that we have. When the trees are cut down, it will destroy them homes and they will have nowhere else to go. And they won't be able to adapt the nice people live in urban areas of del, countries. They also would find it very hard to get a job due to then history of liberating types and rain bodies. When indigenous people lose their rain forests refugee, the Duma die out in the physical sense, not again, just relocate as some animals are able to do. They do lose their culture and their ways of life that have lasted for many generations. They lose their traditional beliefs and sustenance pattens that allows them to live in harmony within the rain fall it is for so many generations that great knowledge of rainfall is how it works and awareness of medical plant species is also lost. 4. Corse Of Action: The relation between man and nature is unique and complex. Triads associated there live with the nature in all aspects of their life. Forest is home for many tribes. It provides them with the basic needs like food, water, shelter, etcetera. Therefore, we need to preserve our thought is for a good environment and for the people who totally depend on nature for their livelihood. You can contribute to the efforts against deforestation by doing these easy steps. First, lambda g, where you can thickened, go paperless at home and in the office. Third, by these I could product and then recycle them again. Full by certified wood products, read the label and look for the FSC Mach five support the products of companies that are committed to reducing the def line station. It's all about business, isn't known by the when we engaged to improve their practices. Fix veins of MS in Jada, good and in your community. Seven, by only what you will use. Eight, don't use Balmain are products with bomber that is made out of trees, is recyclable. Practice these bagging diligently. Your bar as a consumer is wider to stopping deforestation. Just like any business, if there is no demand and the supply will be lessened. Fortunately, there are environmentally and forests renewed businesses that are helping this dot the deforestation. They need your support. Let's encourage their efforts by patronizing their products. 5. Project Work: So values has a fun project work. This project will help you to want to do to the environment in one or the other way. So you just have to plant a tree where every you again and click a picture of that and upload that in your projects action. If you don't want to miss any of digit, I remind us kinship glasses, blue, forget to follow me. Thank you for joining me. Keep learning, keep growing. Mumbai.
