Gangtok: The  Department of Forest and Environment Department of Sikkim is operating a marketing outlet  at Forest Secretariat Deorali, through its ENVIS Cell,  to provide a small scale retailing platform for local natural produce such as sweet honey, sour honey and bamboo crafts.

These products are the outcome of green skilled manpower resources located at rural areas of the state who had under gone capacity building and livelihood based skilling under the Green Skill Development Programme (GSDP) implemented by the department, reports North East Now.

The marketing outlet featuring the products of Green Skill Development Programme includes bamboo crafts, naturally extracted honey and beekeeping tools, briquettes and skilled manpower resources for outsourcing services for solar PV installation and so on.

Interestingly,  the products displayed for sale in this outlet are prepared by green skilled manpower from rural communities.

The outlet intends to provide marketing opportunities to these beneficiaries for generating a source of livelihood through sustainable development initiatives. So far 425 local youths, school dropouts and farmers from Sikkim have been benefitted through the Green Skill Development Programme under the ENVIS scheme funded by the Ministry, reports the news portal.
