The Ministry of Environment and Forests (MoEF), Government of India, constituted a
National Level Steering Committee under the chairmanship of the Director General of Forests
and a Drafting Committee with the Director, Forest Research Institute (FRI), Dehradun, as its
chairman for the study.

The National Steering Committee provided the basic framework for identifying the drivers of
change within the economic environment and for analyzing the synergy between environment
and development issues. Linkages with poverty alleviation were identified as the main
emphasis of future forestry development in India. It was decided that the growing importance
of NWFPs for poverty reduction is also to be placed in a proper perspective. The recent
developments in research and technology and interlinkages between regional economic
imbalances and national development leading to many social problems such as extremism
have also to be considered in analyzing future forestry development.

Inputs from a number of external resource persons have been used in the report. While the
1998 Forest Policy continues to be the guiding principle for sustainable forestry development
in India, the following relevant reports and documents were consulted for preparation of this
report:

• National Forestry Action Plan 1999
• Documents related to international conventions
• Millennium Development Goals (2000)
• National Forest Commission Report (2006)
• Acts and policies
• SFM in India report of the Mission 2006 (ITTO)
• International Instruments on Sustainable Development of all Type of Forests
• State Forests Report (2005)
