Review of the Jharkhand Community Forestry Project



The proposed five-year Jharkhand Community Forestry Project developed mechanisms to promote and sustain a transition from Joint Forest Management (JFM) to Community Forest Management (CFM). The adoption of CFM aimed to empower communities to take autonomous decisions regarding the management of forest resources. The project aimed to develop and strengthen participatory systems of natural resource management to improve the livelihoods of rural people in the forested areas. LTS was involved in reviewing the proposed project.
