KUTTANAD is in Alapuzha District of Kerala State, which is known as VENICE OF THE EAST, because of its natural abundance in Canals, Rivers, Paddy Fields, Back Waters etc, and geological, and geographical similarities. Kuttanad is more than one meter below sea level. Agriculture is the main source of lively hood for the people there. The water filled paddy fields are used for cultivating paddy, by pumping out the water, after protecting the boundaries with clay/sand bunds.
Kerala backwaters have been used for centuries by the local people for transportation, fishing and agriculture. The region has supported the efforts of the local people to earn a livelihood. In more recent times, agricultural efforts have been strengthened with reclamation of some backwater lands for rice growing, particularly in the Kuttanad area. Boat-making has been a traditional craft.
