9 Aug 2015 Are tribals really benefitting from the Forest Rights Act? “It must be emphasised that FRA does not ask for wholesale transfer of management to the local communities. Section 3 (1)(i) of the Act gives right to forest dwellers ‘to protect, regenerate or conserve or manage any community forest resource’ only when they have been traditionally protecting and conserving that resource for sustainable use. While there are excellent examples of local governance, the experience of north-east where most forests are under community control shows that sustainable management cannot always be taken for granted if government totally withdraws from the scene.
Therefore, government should continue to provide technical support to the gram sabhas and monitor its sustainable use through encouraging regeneration of forests and ensuring not only higher production of MFPs but price support as provided to farmers so as to rejuvenate tribal economy.” ET. #Analysis
