Assam and Arunachal Pradesh are the two Northeasternmost states in India. Among the most biodiverse parts of the sub-continent, the landscapes of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh support sub-tropical, temperate and alpine forests, thousands of flower and plant species, and many hundreds of species of birds, insects, reptiles and amphibians, and mammals. Arunachal Pradesh and Assam are home to many iconic endangered animals such as the tiger, leopard, snow leopard, clouded leopard, gibbon, red panda, takin and more.

The people of Assam and Arunachal Pradesh are just as culturally and linguistically diverse as the flora and fauna. 20 indigenous languages are spoken in Assam and 50 are spoken in Arunachal Pradesh. Between the two states, there are dozens of tribes and over 100 sub-tribes.

In particular, the Odiyana Project will serve a local population that includes ethnic groups such as Tamang, Sherpa, Adi, and Tibetan people, among others.
