Implementation of JFM Policy in Odisha:
The collective protection efforts by the forest fringed people towards conservation of forests have been started since before 1950. The Government’s initiative in this direction came with implementation of National Forest Policy, 1988. In realizing the need for involving the local village community in forest protection and management, the Government of Odisha stepped forward by notifying Orissa Village Forest Rules, 1985 and issued a resolution in 1st August, 1988 which came into effect from 02.10.1988 before the implementation of National Forest Policy 1988. This resolution opened a scope for assigning the specific roles to the adjoining villages for protection and management of reserved forests and subsequently a large number of Forest Protection Committees came into existence. In return, the villages enjoyed with certain concessions in the matter of meeting their bonafide requirements of firewood and small timbers.
