Structural Changes in Forest Departments
Report/paper, 40 pages
This paper considers how, in the last decade, forest departments in India have had to modify management systems in line with the latest policy emphasis on Joint Forest Management. The author argues for the need to decentralise decision making in state Forest Departments, and for greater participation and transparency.
