But it is strongly felt that there are many grey areas where still a lot is needed to be done. Further, many good things are happening around the globe in the field of Forests resources particularly NWFP management related issues. There are plenty of success stories regarding sustainable livelihood through Forest resource utilization.

Forests are essential for human survival and well being. They harbour two thirds of all terrestrial animal and plant species. They provide us with food, oxygen, shelter, recreation, and spiritual sustenance, and they are the source for over 5,000 commercially traded products, ranging from pharmaceuticals to timber and clothing. The biodiversity of forests the variety of genes, species, and forest ecosystems underpins these goods and services, and is the basis for long term forest health and stability.
