State of the World’s Forests 2016 (SOFO2016)
 
02:19
Agriculture remains the most significant driver of global deforestation. Large-scale commercial agriculture and subsistence agriculture currently account for 73 percent of deforestation in the tropics and subtropics. However, it is possible under certain conditions to achieve sustainable agriculture and food security while also halting deforestation. A new study from FAO - The State of the World’s Forests 2016: Forests and agriculture - land use challenges and opportunities - identifies more than 20 countries that have maintained or increased forest area, and improved food security since 1990. This video focuses on successful methods in Costa Rica, Viet Nam and The Gambia.

Indira Gandhi National Forest Academy: Managing country's forest and wildlife resources
 
03:21
Indira Gandhi National Forest Academy was the Indian Forest College before 1987. The grounds of the academy is soaked in the sweat of the hard working cadets or candidates for the position of forest officers. The cadets are doing laps of the academy grounds in a file early in the morning before they get started with their physical training session. Indira Gandhi National Forest Academy (IGNFA) was constituted in the year 1987 by renaming the erstwhile Indian Forest College, which was originally established in 1938 for training senior forest officers. It is situated in the New Forest campus of New Forest campus (FRI) on Chakrata Road (NH-72), five kilometres from Dehradun town. IGNFA is currently functioning as a Staff College for the officers of the Indian Forest Service (IFS). The primary mandate of the Academy is to impart knowledge and skills to the professional foresters and help them to develop competence for managing the country forest and wildlife resources on a sustainable basis. In the Academy, training is provided at different levels of seniority in the Indian Forest Service besides training the new entrants to the service. Initially a constituent of Forest Research Institute & Colleges set up in 1938 to impart Professional Forestry Training to newly recruited Forest Officers, it was renamed as Indira Gandhi National Forest Academy in 1987 with the added status of staff college to train a cadre of competent forest managers at various levels including in-service training to manage India’s forest resources.

Forestry and the forest industry in a green economy
 
10:32
An effort is under way worldwide to better manage our planet's forest resources and better enhance their role in mitigating climate change. Forest loss and degradation in developing countries account for nearly 20% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Monitoring and reducing these emissions has been the key goal for the international community in climate change negotiations and is important for the upcoming Rio+20 conference on sustainable development. Viet Nam is one example of a country that's taking important steps to manage and expand its forest resources. Previous loss of forested areas has been reversed and the country is now increasing forest area by about 1% every year.

Nature and Life - Episode 262 (Forest Management)
 
23:55
Our country is rich with diverse forests. Due to geographical position and fertile land, various types of forests have emerged in this country. There are mainly evergreen forests, deciduous forests or Sal forests and mangrove forest in Bangladesh. These beautiful forests are also reservoirs of huge resources. These forests are rich with both floral and faunal resources. Among the floral resources, there are woods, bamboos, rattan, murta, nipa palm, honey etc. The wildlife is one of the most vital parts of the faunal resources of the forests. There is a magnificent combination of insects, butterflies, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals in the natural forests. Forests are vitally contributing in maintaining the natural balance and numerous people of this country are living depending on the forests and forest resources. Every single forest, with its unique characteristics, is serving as a reservoir of wildlife and other resources. But due to various reasons the forests and the environment are threatened now. The forestland is decreasing due to gradual increase in population, climate change, pollution, destruction of natural forests, tobacco cultivation and alien invasive plants etc. So, a proper management of this resource is needed to protect the forests and the environment. The Forest Department is responsible for the management of the forests in Bangladesh. The duties of the Forest Department include conservation of the forests, expansion and collecting revenue. Implementing various projects to protect, conserve and expand the forests according to the present laws and policies of the country is another prime responsibility of the Forest Department. The aim of the national forest policy, various environment policies and initiatives is to protect the natural forests and to do reforestation in those places where the forests are destroyed or appropriated. The Forest Department also carries out the forest survey and various researches. Though once the forests were considered as the source of revenues, now the concept has been changed completely. The Forest Department is performing various activities in order to protect the natural forests. Besides, the forests are managed by declaring as protected forests, where various activities harmful for the plants and animals are considered as punishable offenses. The protected forests in our country are divided into two groups; wildlife sanctuaries and national parks. Besides, the Safari Parks, Eco Parks, Ecologically Critical Areas, World Heritage Sites, Ramsar sites etc. are categorized as protected areas. But it is not possible to protect the forests properly by fashioning the policies or by declaring protected areas only. Involving local community in the forest management is essential to solve this issue. The social afforestation and co-management have been added to the management of the forests. The social afforestation in Bangladesh was started in 1979. The conservation system integrating the local community has been built by this initiative. This system helps to build up a relationship of compromise and mutual cooperation between the Forest Department and the local community of the forest area. The main goal of social afforestation and co-management is to train the local community to integrate them with forests conservation and to share the income from the forests with them. As well as encouraging the local community to protect the forests. Though various activities are being done by the Forest Department, we are not achieving expected results in context of protecting the forest resources and expansion. The forest protection activities are being interrupted due to insufficient manpower. Though regular afforestation program is going on, many hills in the Chittagong Hill Tracts are still remaining tree less. Besides, the wildlife conservation activities are also being affected. The capacity to deal with the impacts of climate change is also reducing. So a national conservation policy, in collaboration with different ministries of the government, is needed for the proper management of the forest resources of the country. Along with this, efficient and adequate man power, modern technology, and environmental education can help to make the forest management sustainable. A sustainable forest management has to be initiated through the participation of the local people and proper implementation of the existing Forest Act and Policy. Only then the conservation and proper use of this precious resource of our country will be ensured.

Developing countries look to South Korea as a role model
 
02:16
산림 관리의 모범 대한민국, 개발도상국에게 지속 가능한 산림 관리 기술을 전수하다 The natural beauty of South Korea's forest-coated mountains are the result of decades of careful management and reforestation programs. Experts from developing nations are in Korea to learn how the country looks after its forest resources. Kim Da-mi reports. South Korea is one of only four countries with a successful history of forest rehabilitation following World War II. In order to learn from Korea's successful reforestation, foreign experts and researchers have gathered in Seoul for workshops and field trips. Korea's reforestation efforts date back to 1950s, when the government introduced the National Forest Plans and fast-growing trees were planted to prevent floods and erosion. In the early 1960s, about 56% of the country was covered by forest, today 64% is covered -- an increase of 840,000 hectares. Nowadays, the focus has shifted from tree-planting to sustainability. Korea's current Sustainable Forest Management policy focuses on balance between forest utilization and preservation, and aims at increasing the amount of natural recreational parks and forests. Not only are forests and recreational parks places for citizens to relax and enjoy nature, but they also create green job opportunities such as forest guides, tree surgeons, and researchers specializing in tree care. "The kind of experience Korea has in terms of forestry and overall development, just to give you a simple example, the first time I'm seeing a forest hospital. I haven't even heard about it. All the advancements that happened scientifically and technically has a lot to offer to developing countries...", "The kind of challenges you had in the 70s and 80s we have some of those now... It's useful thing to come here, coming to somebody who's been there before. I'm particularly interested in how your fire management techniques can be applied back at home, especially wild fire management." Korea's extensive experience in reforestation and sustainable forest management will now help developing countries restore, protect and utilize their own forests. KIM Da-mi, Arirang News.

Nature and Life - Episode 119 (Forests of Bangladesh)
 
27:53
Bangladesh is beautiful with its natural greens. It is known as 'country of green' due to its vast crop lands and diversified forests. Our forests are a vital part of our natural resources. Here, millions of people live depending on forest resources. Additionally, forests play the most vital role in maintaining natural balance. Mainly four types of forest found in this country. But evergreen forest is the most remarkable among them. This forest is rich with beauty as well as resources. Evergreen forest encompasses three layered plants -- small, medium and large. Some climbers and shrubs are also found in this forest along with high-rise trees. Apart from those; Bamboo, Rattan, various species of grass and Orchids can also be seen in this forest. Predominantly the hilly forest of Hill Tract is known as evergreen forest. Besides, this forest is also spread into Sylhet, Chittagong and Cox's bazar. Characteristically the Green look never fades away from the face of Evergreen forest. Natural fountains, Caves and numerous small and large streams can be found in this forest. As a result, in addition to diversified plants, the invaluable resources of this forest also include innumerable species of wildlife. Everything including Amphibians, Reptiles, Birds, and Mammals together has formed a unique ecosystem in here. Typically Semi-evergreen forest is almost similar to evergreen forest. Deciduous plants are found, in this forest, along with evergreen plants. The forest that is located in middle and North-West of this country is named Sal forest (deciduous forest). Once, Sal forest used to be highly distinguished among the largest undivided forest lands of Bangladesh. It was also rich with wildlife. This forest is also known as moist deciduous forest as it sheds leaves during winter and then gets back its previous look with new leaves in monsoon. Formerly, Sal forest used to be spread all the way from Tangail, Mymensingh and North Bengal to Darjeeling of India. This forest is now spread in a fragmented form throughout Modhupur's tract, Dhaka, Rangpur, Dinajpur, Rajshahi, Naogaon, Thakurgaon and greater Mymensingh districts. Sundarbans is the biggest mangrove forest of Bangladesh. This is the largest mangrove forest of the world if combined both Bangladeshi part and Indian part together. This is the largest natural forest of Bangladesh and almost all of its 6000 square kilometer Bangladeshi part is preserved. Sundarbans is located at the gateway of Bay-of-Bengal in the South and South-West region of greater Khulna district. This amazing forest, for its unmatched beauty and titanic resources, has been declared as "World Heritage Site" and "Ramsar Site". Sundarbans provides millions of coastal people with livelihood and at the same time it acts as the prime shield against natural disasters. This forest is unique because of its day-night tidal sequences, plants that survive in salt water, Stilt roots and pneumatophores. Sundarbans has been named after the key plant, of this forest, Sundori. Other mentionable plants are: Gewa (Excoecaria agallocha), Keora (Sonneratia apetala), Goran (Ceriops decandra), Dhundul (Xylocarpus granatum), Baen (Avicennia officinalis), Passur (Xylocarpus mekongensis), Gol Pata (Nypa Fruticans), Hental (Phoenix paludosa), Hargoza (Acanthus ilicifolius), Hogla (Typha elephantina), Kankra (Bruguiera gymnorrhiza) etc. Sundarbans is a vital habitat of one of the world's most stunning and endangered animals- Tigar. It is also home to various species of flagship wildlife. It is also known as natural fish breeding ground. About 120 species of financially vital fishes are found here, along with various other species of fishes. Natural resources of Sundarbans like -- Honey, Wax, Crabs, Shrimps, Nypa fruticans etc. are greatly contributing in our economy. Certain types of other forests are also found in our country, such as: Coastal forest, Sea-shore forest and Wetland forest of Haor regions. Besides, social afforestation in different regions, including coastal areas, has created a massive reaction within local people. These newly formed forests are protecting coastal people from natural disasters. Essentially every forest, with its unique features, acts as reservoir for wildlife and other resources. But environment and forests of Bangladesh are now in danger for various reasons. Number of our forests is declining due to gradual increase in population, climate change, environment pollution, monoculture by deforestation, tobacco farming, alien invasive plants etc. For any animal to live natural forests are irreplaceably important. Conservation of forest and environment entails apposite management of resources, public awareness and responsibility towards environment. Planner, Director and Anchor: Muqeed Majumdar Babu.

Nature and Life - Episode 286 (Forests and Co-management)
 
23:53
Bangladesh is like a heart of forests. Here geographical position, soil, water, light, temperature etc. altogether have enriched the forests. As a result, various types of forests are present in Bangladesh. 4 types of forests are mainly there in Bangladesh. Evergreen, mixed evergreen, deciduous and mangrove forest. Despite being small, forest diversity or richness is more in Bangladesh than most other countries. So, forests are the pride of Bangladesh. Forests have made the country green. These forests are also rich with natural resources. Both floral and faunal resources are there. Among floral resources, there are Bamboo, Wood, Rattan, Cool Mat, Nypapalm, Honey etc. Faunal resources include various species of wildlife. These forests are rich with insects, butterflies, amphibians, reptiles, birds and mammals. Forests are vital for natural balance and numerous people depend on the forest and its resources for their life and livelihoods. But due to various reasons, our forests are now threatened. Our forestland is shrinking due to increasing human population, climate change, pollution, deforestation, tobacco farming, alien invasive plants etc. Despite many adversities, some of our forests are still surviving. To conserve these forests, various works are going on in our country including Protected Area declaration. To accelerate the forest conservation works, Co-management has been introduced in the forest management system. Co-management is the active participation of all stakeholders in partnership on the basis of a consensus in the management of natural resources of any particular area. Co-management has introduced new hope and has been accepted as the ideal model in different countries of the world by removing the deficiencies of the long used traditional natural resource management system. So, introducing Co-management system in the forest management in Bangladesh is a revolutionary step. Already, this system has had major impact in the development of different biodiversity rich forests of Bangladesh including Lawachara National Park and Madhupur National Park. This system aims to conserve of the forests by creating awareness about forests and by creating alternate livelihoods for the people dependent on the forests. Under this system, local people get training to be involved in the forest protection activities and also get share of the earnings from the forests. So, rather than keeping the local people away from the forests, Co-management committee inspires the people in conserving the forest. Despite being day laborer or Betel, lemon or Pineapple farmers, they largely depend on forest and due to lack of awareness, they used to illegally misuse forest resources. As a result, appropriation of the natural forests, felling trees, illegally harvesting natural resources from the forest were common scenarios. But Co-management system has been playing a vital role in forest conservation by providing these people with alternate livelihood. The poor locals are involving themselves in eco-guide, eco-cottage or handicraft related occupations and are working for the conservation of the forest by themselves. However, to conserve the forests the contribution of the Co-management system is not enough. To savor the proper results of this system, the concerned authorities have to be more proactive. To update the running Co-management system, increasing trained manpower and economic & social development of the locals are must. Socioeconomic development of the local people will reduce their dependency on the forest resources and will safeguard the natural balance of the forest. And a healthy environment will be ensured for our future generation.

Nature and Life - Episode 180 (Madhupur National Park)
 
26:59
Sal (deciduous) forest is a traditional forest of Bangladesh. Once it was famous as the biggest forest of the country. Presently this forest is surviving, in a fragmented form, in the middle and northern side of the country. Madhupur National Park has been declared within Modhupur Sal forest to maintain the dignity and to uphold the ecosystem of Sal forest. It is such a park where local biodiversity are being conserved in a natural environment. This park is attracting numerous visitors and also unveiling ways for various biological education and research. Madhupur National Park is sited in Madhupur Upazila of Tangail District, 125 km. far from Dhaka city. It was declared as National Park in 1982 with 20,837 acres area. Soil of this park is bit Acidic. Moreover, due to the presence of iron and aluminium, this park has reddish or yellowish soil. Rainfall rate is very low in here. As a result, flowing water is rare in here. Hence, this park has rough soil. That is why this park has different ecosystem compared to other forests of our country. Diversified plants are there in this park with Sal trees as the dominant plant. Sal trees occupy the most areas of this park. Since these trees shed leaves in winter, this park becomes pale in winter. Dried leaves cover the whole ground of the park. But new leaves appear in April-May. Gradually the whole park becomes green again. Beside Sal, Queen Flower, White Siris tree, Arjun, Golden shower tree, Silk Cotton etc. plants are also there in this park. Large volume of herbs and shrubs grow in some places of the park. Various flowers bloom in here and the whole park becomes colorful. Various climbers grow in here. They spirally climb host trees to grow upwards. Apart from these, various species of orchids are also found in here. Various ferns, fungus and medicinal plants also grow in here. Among medicinal plants Emblic Myrobalan, Black Myrobalan, Beleric Myrobalan, Butterfly tree and Indian Snakeroot are mentionable. Numerous wildlife survive here under the shelter of these plants. Horgoja and Banyan type trees supply a large portion of food for these wildlife. This park has the largest population of Capped Langur of our country. They roam and feed in group. Numerous Monkeys can also be seen in the park. These social animals are common throughout the park. This park is also home to various mammals like: Squirrel, Jackal, Mongoose, Porcupine, Deer etc. Presence of various species of birds keep the park resonant. Sweet calls of White-rumped Shama echoes throughout the park. Leafbird, Barbet, Owl, Woodpecker, Bee-eater, Weaver, Parakeet etc. are also common in this park. These birds play vital role in pollination of the plants in here. The park becomes colorful & sonorous due to these birds. This park is also home to various reptiles and amphibians. Many species of snakes and frogs can be seen in here. The ecosystem here is rich with invertebrates like: Butterfly, Moth, Spider and insects. They roam throughout the park. They keep the ecosystem lively by helping in pollination. But the increased human population around the park is affecting the ecosystem of the park. This park has recently been harmed by human activities like: deforestation, forming agricultural land inside forest, illegal hunting of wildlife etc. But various Government initiated forest conservation projects, which also involve local people, are vitally contributing in biodiversity conservation in here. The pressure on forest resources needs to be mitigated by encouraging forest dependent people for alternate livelihood. Sustainable use of forest resources needs to be ensured by implementing apt economic system. Only then the valuable resources and biodiversity of Madhupur National Park will be conserved.

Congo, My Precious. The Curse of the coltan mines in Congo
 
52:01
Watch more https://rtd.rt.com/tags/illegal-mining/ The Democratic Republic of Congo in Africa is one of the world’s most resource-rich countries. A wide range of rare minerals can be found here in abundance, all commanding high prices in world commodity markets. Diamonds for jewellery, tantalum, tungsten and gold for electronics; uranium used in power generation and weaponry and many others. Congo has copious deposits of raw materials that are in high demand internationally but remains one of the poorest countries in the world. From colonisation, with the horrors of slavery and other atrocities, to a turbulent and equally brutal present in which militant groups control the mines, Congo’s richness in natural resources has brought nothing but misery. Referred to as “conflict minerals”, these riches leave only a trail of death, destruction and poverty. Under Belgian rule, Congolese labourers were often required to meet quotas when mining different minerals. Failure could mean punishment by having a hand cut off with a machete. The country gained independence in 1960, but that didn’t put a stop to slave and child labour or to crimes being committed to extract and exploit the minerals. Warring militant fractions from inside the country and beyond seized control of mines for their own benefit while terrorising local populations. For our translator, Bernard Kalume Buleri, his country’s history of turmoil is very personal; like most Congolese people, he and his family fell victim to the unending mineral based power struggle. Born in the year of his country’s independence, he has lived through war and seen his homeland torn apart by violent looting and greed. His story is a damning testament, illustrating how nature’s bounty, instead of being a blessing, becomes a deadly curse.

Nature and Life - Episode 241 (Climate Change and Sundarbans)
 
27:16
The world’s largest single block mangrove forest Sundarbans is sited by the Bay of Bengal in the coastal area of Bangladesh. Sited in the Ganges-Brahmaputra river basin this magnificent forestland spread across Khulna, Bagerhat and Satkhira districts of Bangladesh. Grown in the salty environment of the coastal area, the Sundarbans is considered as the largest integrated forest in the world. About 60% of this around 10,000 sq. km. forest is situated in Bangladesh. The Sundarbans has been declared as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO for having rich biodiversity and unique characteristics. Numerous canals, islands, muddy islands and rivers are spread like a web in the Sundarbans. This forest is also home to numerous aquatic and terrestrial flora and fauna. The Sundari is the dominating plant in the Sundarbans. But there are also other plants like: Garan, Gewa, Keora, Kankra, Bain, Pashur, Dhundal, Nypa Palm etc. Specific species of plants are found in different areas depending on the quality of soil and water. Plenty of Sundari trees are found in the northeast part of the Sundarbans. Again the number of Garan and Gewa is higher in the eastern side due to high salinity. For having high salinity, the growth and height of the trees are low in here. The animals of the Sundarbans are vital part of this forest. About 40 species of mammals are seen in this forest. Along with Monkey, Spotted Deer, Bengal Tiger, Wild Boar, other mammals like Fishing Cat, Jungle Cat, Otter etc. are often seen. Apart from these, the Ganges River Dolphin is seen in the rivers and larger canals. Three Sanctuaries have been declared in the Sundarbans to conserve the Ganges River Dolphins, Irrawaddy Dolphins etc. Around 270 species of birds are found in the Sundarbans. Among these birds various species of kingfisher, owl, eagle, vulture etc. are remarkable. Worldwide endangered Masked Finfoot is also found in this protected forest area. They exist only in some places in the whole world. The Masked Finfoot prefers to live in the wetland rich with plants, flooded forest and mangrove canals etc. Beside this the Sundarbans is full of various species of reptiles and amphibians. The Saltwater Crocodiles are often seen in the canals and rivers of the Sundarbans. A Crocodile Breeding Center has been established at Karamjal in Sundarbans to conserve and increase their number. Apart from the biodiversity the Sundarbans is also important economically. It is considered as the largest source of forest resources of the country. Different types of resources are being collected from this forest each year. The local people collect firewood, Nypa palm, honey, wax, fish, crabs, snails, oysters etc. from this forest for their livelihood. Besides, this forest is vitally contributing in the tourism industry, as it is an attractive place for national and international tourists. But this naturally and economically significant Sundarbans is now getting affected due to various reasons. Though human activities are mainly responsible, this coastal forest is also threatened due to climate change. This natural armor of the coastal region is gradually declining. The intensity of the cyclones caused by climate change can destroy the biodiversity of the Sundarbans. Along with the world famous Bengal Tiger, various wildlife and plants might go extinct. The ice melting rate is increasing in the Antarctica and high mountains like the Himalayas due to global temperature rise. So the coastal low lands are drowning due to sea level rise. As salt water is intruding into new places, the agriculture is severely being harmed. So we have to take apt initiative right now to save the Sundarbans as well as the coastal area. The natural calamities can be controlled by creating forest barriers in the coastal area by afforestation and reforestation program. The combined efforts of both the government and non-government organizations can play effective role in this regard. Along with this, sustainable development and climate tolerant crops production need to be emphasized. Only then the Sundarbans and its unique biodiversity will sustain.

European forestry innovation: towards a green economy
 
12:10
On the occasion of European Forest Week and Metsä2013 Joint session of the ECE Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry and the FAO European Forestry Commission, this video highlights the importance of sustainable forestry for the future of the UNECE region and greening the economy. The UNECE/FAO Forestry & Timber Section has served as a trusted source of information, data and analysis about the forest sector in the UNECE region for more than 60 years. It also provides a forum for policy discussion about major issues that affect the forest sector. The section is unique in that it is a joint UNECE/FAO secretariat, servicing the UNECE Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry and the FAO European Forestry Commission and working closely with other members of the United Nations family and with country stakeholders. It operates to a mandate agreed by the 56 countries, which together comprise the UNECE region, stretching from North America to the Russian Federation and Central Asia. Its priorities and activities are presented in its Strategic Plan. Working with FAO, the Section plays a pivotal role in the regular assessment of the state of forests in the pan-European region and contributes to the periodic global Forest Resources Assessment . In addition, the section's work with Forest Europe allows a regular critical assessment of the health and sustainability of Europe's forests, using criteria and indicators drawn up by the countries active in the Forest Europe process. The results are published in the State of Europe's Forests report. The Section is also active in the field of forest policies and institutions, recognized as an integral part of sustainable forest management. These activities include information collection, analysis and dissemination, monitoring of developments, analysis of trends and capacity building. The Section addresses important cross-sectoral aspects of relevance to the forest sector, notably related to climate change mitigation and adaptation, bioenergy, biodiversity, land use, water and agriculture. For instance, the Section works to improve the knowledge and understanding of wood energy sources and uses, in particular by collecting data on wood energy in member countries through the Joint Wood Energy Enquiry, and promotes the sustainable use of wood for energy. The Section's work compiling market and, to a lesser extent, price data for forest products throughout the region, feeds into the prestigious Forest Products Annual Market Review, which appears every autumn and forms the basis for market discussions during the annual session of the Committee on Forests and the Forest Industry. As well as providing an overview of the changing state of markets, the review sets out to understand the forces that are shaping the timber market and to examine future directions. Underlying all of this is a comprehensive database that provides a unique historical perspective. A core part of the UNECE/FAO forest and timber programme from the early 1950s has also been the publication of long-term forest sector outlook studies. The latest European Forest Sector Outlook Study (EFSOS II) comprises scenarios addressing main policy issues on climate change mitigation, wood energy promotion, biodiversity preservation and industrial innovation for the period 2010-2030. EFSOS II is being used in many circles as a basis for policy formulation and analysis. This brief introduction can give you only a flavour of the work that the UNECE/FAO Forestry & Timber undertakes.

The Tropical Evergreen Forest Of Arunachal Pradesh | Ziro | Koloriang | Ziro to Koloriang |
 
02:46
Situated on the northeastern tip of the country, the state of Arunachal Pradesh is a part of Eastern Himalayan Ranges located between 26º 28’ to 29º30, N latitudes and 91º 30’ to 97º30’ E longitudes. Arunachal Pradesh occupies the largest area (83.743 Sq. Km) in the northeastern region of India, and consists of mountainous ranges sloping to the plains of Assam. The diversity of topographical and climatic condition has favored the growth of luxuriant forests, which are home to myriad plant and animal forms, adding beauty to the landscape. Living in this incredible cradle of nature are the colorful and vibrant tribes of Arunachal Pradesh for whom the forests and wildlife are of special significance. The total human population of 8,64,558 (1991 census) lives in 3649 villages and small towns. The cattle population of the State is 9 lakhs (1991 census). Livelihoods of local people have been closely linked and heavily dependent on forest resources since time immemorial. However, with increasing population, development activities, large number of wood-based industries and unsustainable land use practices like jhuming, the pressure on forest resources is consistently increasing leading to their degradation affecting regeneration and productivity. As per State of Forest Report, 1999 of Forest Survey of India, about 82% of total geographical area of 83,740 sq. kms., which is about 62% of the total geographical area and includes 10185.40 sq. km. of Reserve & Protected Forests which is about 12% of the area while the Protected Area Network covers and area of 9527.99 sq. km being 12% of the area and balance 38% is Unclassified Forest. The important forests types found in the state are Tropical evergreen, semi evergreen, deciduous, Pine, Temperate, Alpine and grassland etc. Forests are the mainstay for the people of Arunachal Pradesh and are the richest biogeographical province in eastern Himalayan zone. The State has 20% species of country’s fauna, 4500 species of flowering plants, 400 species of pteridophytes, 23 species of conifers, 35 species of bamboos, 20 species of canes, 52 Rhododendron species & more than 500 species of orchids and is considered as one of the 12 mega diversity “Hot Spots” in the world. Forests generate the largest employment and are the single largest source of revenue for the State. Supreme Court had imposed certain restrictions on felling of trees in 1996, which has affected the revenue resources of the State.
