Koslanda Sustainable Development Zone
Living Heritage has recently established a permanent office for volunteer workers in the village of Koslanda in Badulla District. The vision of this project is to revitalise the lapsed concept of the Sustainable Development Zone, a government backed project covering seven villages within a 10 km square area (population 7,618), with the aim of creating an region that is environmentally pure, economically secure and acts as a leading example of sustainable rural development. Within this area we will strive to preserve the lifestyle, agrarian practices, traditions and values of a fast disappearing way of life
We have entered into a partnership with the Koslanda Rural Knowledge Centre or Nanasala and work together as a mutually supportive team on a number of local initiatives.
Goals of the project
LHT Koslanda has a range of initiatives in an early stage of development ranging from women’s handicraft projects to spices for export programmes.
LHT’s corporate affiliate Living Heritage Reserves, a sustainable tourism initiative is also based in the area and will form a symbiotic relationship with LHT Koslanda by purchasing goods produced through LHT’s programmes and giving part of its profit to support our overheads.
