The conservation and management of our natural resources are no longer looked at in isolation. In recent years, authorities have realised that an area-based approach that involves participation by local communities, non-governmental organisations and policy-makers will alone work in the long run.
In this book, Dr. J. P. Yadav explains why such an approach should be backed by site-specific microplans.A microplan is a record or document that contains a set of activities and instructions for the guidance of the manager of a natural resource. Dr. Yadav, currently working as Conservator of Forests, Social Forestry, Tripura, gives a step-by-step account of the processes involved and the techniques that would be helpful in its implementation. Using practical examples, the book provides details on every aspect of microplanning from methodology, data collection and analysis to detailed accounts of alternative management plans.
