In the Gosaba Block located at the fringe of the protected area in Sundarban Biosphere Reserve (SBR) two villages, Dulki and Dayapur, were chosen for being representative of the livelihoods and the struggles of the local population in the district. There we explored the present livelihood condition of the inhabitants in order to evaluate the future possibilities in this part of the SBR. Our research question was formulated as:
Considering the potentially changing ecological, social and economical conditions, what are the prospects for the future of the people of Dulki and Dayapur in the Sundarban?
With the use of the transition framework and the triangular model that looks at the three social domains as stated in the research question, three scenarios were depicted to describe what futures could be possible for the area.
