Community Led Landscape Management Project (CLLMP) has very rightly identified preparation of Forest Management Plan as one of the important project components. Achieving Sustainable Landscape Management without the sustainable forest management is not possible, more so in the biodiversity-rich, hilly landscapes of Meghalaya.
Preparation of Forest Management Plan for all the 400 villages selected under CLLMP has been done with the involvement of community members. Training of local youths identified as VCFs, in the methodology and field works of Forest Inventory has led to major capacity development in the communities of a technical and specialized kind.
