Forest Governance Learning Group (FGLG) Workplan for India - enabling practical, just and sustainable forest use
The FGLG aims to study and develop ‘Governance tactics for forestry enterprise’, focusing in this paper on the central Indian states of Andhra Pradesh, Orissa and Madhya Pradesh. This workplan outlines activities that will be developed in a stepwise fashion; with review and assessment of needs at the end of each step. Four main outputs are expected over the project period: Output 1: Poverty reduction strategies, national forest programmes, decentralisation programmes and related processes enable improved forest governance Output 2: Illegal and corrupt forestry that degrades livelihoods is reduced through the adoption and spread of practical approaches to improve forest governance Output 3: Forestry enterprise initiatives and private sector associations comply with the law and spread practical approaches to improve forest governance Output 4: Ownership, access rights, policy and management frameworks are improved to support local control and benefit from forestry. The project will also support regional exchange of emerging lessons between the Asian FGLGs. This document forms Appendix 1 to ????
