Toward sustainable use of forest resource: connecting forest ecology to village economy

In this study, sampled equal proportions of Revenue Forest and Reserve Forest, for assessment of the status of forest biodiversity and disturbance regimes. The report addresses the following objectives: Identifying drivers of deforestation, for developing a mitigation strategy in the REDD+ project area; Making a broad estimate of the clumps of bamboos (Dendrocalamus strictus) occurring within the area and suggesting their sustainable harvesting methods and their economic import; and Preparing an inventory of the Non-Timber Forest Products (NTFP) occurring within the project area mentioned above and suggesting their sustainable harvesting methods for long term benefits to forest village economies.
