There have been a number of constraints which need to be duly addressed and remedial measures taken so that the forest resources of the state could be utilised in the socio- economic development of the state in a sustainble manner.
The constraints are as follows :
- Inadequate appreciation of the role and value of forests.
- Inadequate investment in forestry sector under the state plan.
- Inadequate income and employment generation programmes and perpetuating poverty.
- Inadequate strengthening of institutional structure.
- Insufficient inter-departmental co-ordination.
- Insufficient motivation (low morale) of forestry personnel and lack of incentives and welfare measures.
- Inadequate dovetailing of community welfare activities in the forestry programme for institutionalising participatory management system.
- Inadequate involvement of Non governmental organisations (NGOs) to facilitate people’s participation.
- Inadequate training of staff, NGOs and JFM functionaries.
- Inadequate harnessing of science and technology inputs to enhance the production.
- Inadequate institutional financing inputs through appropriate agency ( Forest Corporation).
