Abstract
Institutions play a critical role in managing natural resources. With the increasing pressure from development activities and events related to climate change it is becoming important for institutions to seek adaptive pathways. The case in point here is the use of plant genetic resources, especially the bamboo resource in Nagaland and how institutions have responded to optimising the resource use through innovative ideas.

The use of sub-quality (flowering) bamboo material to charcoal making is one such innovative use promoted by institutional authorities. This activity helps not only sustain local livelihoods by generating an economic value out of the otherwise wasted resource but also at a large level contributes to reduction in carbon emission by substituting to the household and industrial fuel use. This has been achieved through a variety of approaches adopted by both state and local level institutions.
