The Forest Governance Learning Group is an informal alliance of in-country groups and international partners currently active in eight African and three Asian countries. We aim to connect those marginalised from forest governance to those controlling it, and to help both do things better.
In 2011, FGLG-India will continue to develop the evidence base and policy briefs on: implementation of the Forest Rights Act (FRA); community forest management and non-timber forest products in the context of the FRA, the Panchayats Extension to Scheduled Areas Act, and REDD; and bioenergy issues. The team also aims to produce a report highlighting the investment made in tree plantations, their current status and level of legitimate forest production in India, and the governance issues arising. It also intends to help develop a platform for stakeholders to engage on REDD, and to explore the links between this and the Green India mission.
