Fair View, like Apoteri, is a community very much remote from the central administration. They have been dependent on the forest and river for their daily existence. Fair View now has an advantage in its relationship with the Iwokrama International Centre. Iwokrama’s presence provides many opportunities for the community in terms of training, jobs, exchange of idea and services. However, in keeping with their traditional way of living and the conservation mindedness of their founders, the community maintains a close relationship with the forest and the river. Despite the changes many of their resources still comes from these two sources.
