Field investigations revealed a positive correlation between well-maintained pond ecosystems and enhanced agricultural productivity, water availability, and biodiversity conservation. Moreover, the study identified the interconnectedness between ecosystem health and human well-being, emphasizing the role of ponds in supporting local livelihoods. Challenges, such as pollution and climate change, were also observed, underscoring the need for sustainable management practices and community involvement in pond governance.
In conclusion, this research underscores the pivotal role of local pond ecosystems in fostering ecological sustainability and securing livelihoods in Malda District. The findings advocate for the integration of local ecological knowledge into conservation strategies, with a focus on community engagement. This research contributes valuable insights for informed decision-making, policy formulation, and community-based initiatives to ensure a harmonious coexistence between human activities and the environment.
