Sustainable development of non-timber forest products: Implication for forest management in India

Sustainable development of non-timber forest products: Implication for forest management in India

Sustainable exploitation of non-wood forest resources as a means for achieving the complimentary objectives of natural forest conservation and income generation for rural inhabitants has drawn international attention in recent years. Accomplishing these dual goals requires an understanding of how non-timber forest products (NTFP) extraction and marketing functions in the tropical regions. This is often hindered by an absence of basic research and analysis. The paper reviews the prevailing management systems and forest policy in India with a view to examining the problems and prospects for NTFP development. Factors influencing the production of economically important NTFP were determined through a case study and the deficiencies in the existing marketing strategy were analysed. Measures to improve the extraction system for higher returns to both the state forestry sector and primary collectors were highlighted and the need for domestication of NTFP species was stressed.
