Stills from "Forest Management Beyond JFM" -- a documentary by SUSANTA BISWAS

“Forest Management Beyond JFM” a documentary on a proposition for saving forests by making the forest fringe dwellers self-reliant to wean them away from forest has been accepted by Doordarshan Kendra, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, Government of India for national telecast. Joint Forest Management is a viable concept and is perhaps the only means of eco-restoration under Indian context, where too many people are too much dependent on too little forests. The documentary was highly appreciated by the the State Forest department of West Bengal.
