Community Forestry

Publication Date :01-Feb-2012

Community forestry has been commonly defined as involvement of local communities in the protection and/or management of public forests. Such a perception doesn't distinguish between community forestry, participatory forestry and other such related terminologies and therefore ignores the legal, social and other aspects of the actual relationship. We need to realize that such ignorance may sometimes do injustice to the people who endeavour to save the precious forest resources with a spirit so close to their heart and who demand no external interference in their relationship with their beloved forest patch. As per Revington's definition, quoted hereinafter, one of the essential parameters of community forestry should be clearly and legally defined boundaries.

From Cash Crops to Carbon Sinks

Publication Date :17-Aug-2012

A study on land alienation in Odisha. The natural-resource-based life & livelihood is fast becoming a tradition of the past with the new generation focusing on careers and livelihood options that relate to a synthetic and artificial world. Resources are abandoned or alienated in this process, CPRs are ignored/neglected/encroached, and household/rural economy is more & more controlled by alien actors. Conventional cropping being replaced by pulpwood plantation is but a reflection of this misery.

Report on Functioning of PESA in Odisha

Publication Date :14-Jan-2013

RCDC assigned a task of compiling a report on the functioning of PESA in the state of Odisha based both on secondary analysis and primary survey at field level, to a local consultant organization National Institute for Development Innovation(NIDI) in late 2010. Agreeing with our observation that the report submitted under the same required further improvements and enrichments the consultant made fresh efforts in 2011 and submitted an improved version of the same without any extra charges. However, we found that to make it a public document useful to all stakeholders we need to modify the same significantly and add new section(s) as well as some exclusive analysis to this report. If this modification took almost a year to complete then that is primarily because of the limitations of time on the part of the undersigned to devote sufficient time for the same, but that in fact proved to be a blessing in disguise ultimately as some remarkable developments took place in the meantime helping us to prepare an updated version.
