XII – Five Year Plan
XII– Five Year Plan Approaches of Forestry Sector 2012-13 to 2016-17
Forests provide the basic life support system to all the living entities of mother earth including mankind.  Forest ecosystems provide fresh air, water resources, fertile soil and agriculture, bio-diversity and environment.  Vast sections of rural society, including a majority of the tribal, are directly dependent on forests for their livelihood.  Forest degradations will have adverse impact on these life supporting systems.  Escalated levels of human impact on the forest resources and their consequent effect on our approach and strategy to forest management have necessitated the identification of certain specific thrust areas for the Twelfth Five Year Plan.  The priority areas for the sector, even while focusing on conservation, augmentation and development of forest and tree resources within the existing forests and outside forest areas of the State, will have to be in tune with the National Forest Policy and the State Forest Policy imperatives, besides reflecting managing Environment and Ecology.
Objectives of the Twelfth Five Year Plan
Bio-diversity and genetic resource conservation by protection of forests and wildlife
Augmentation of water resources in forest areas
Rehabilitation and restoration of degraded forests for improvement of forest cover
Enhancing tree cover outside forests for livelihood security and climate change mitigation
Welfare of tribal and forest fringe communities to ensure economic prosperity and ecological stability
