Course Overview

Forest is one of the most valuable terrestrial ecosystems that play a crucial role in maintaining environmental balance. It provides numerous goods and services, and maintains life support system essential for life on earth. Forests soak up carbon dioxide from the atmosphere offsetting anthropogenic emissions. Protecting forests, therefore, has a double-cooling effect, by reducing carbon emissions and by maintaining high levels of evaporation from the canopy. However, forests are in great anthropogenic pressure due to the ever-increasing demand for forest products and dependency of about 60 million forest dependents. The higher dependency of a larger section of rural population has an inhibitory effect on the productivity of forest. It has been estimated that more than 40% poor of the country are living in these forest fringe villages. Thus, forest is a source of livelihood and providing opportunities for poverty reduction to a larger section of rural population.
