In 2014, DRAG won the nature award for its contribution to the alleviation of the environment. Gautam received it on behalf of the NGO in a packed auditorium at the India International Centre, Delhi.
In his speech Gautam stated : For biodiversity to survive it is imperative that our strategy remains non intrusive. DRAG’s intervention has taken that perspective seriously. Respect for nature is respect for the traditions and customs of the people we work with.
Then he went on to describe DRAG’s efforts to conserve the environment in two rural pockets
1. One is located in the tribal belt of Maharashtra.
2. The other among the nomadic herders settled in a village located in the Aravalli range, Haryana.
