Forest management in India has become accommodative since the forest policy of 1988. Presently, three types of ‘collective action’ based institutions can be found: self-initiated, NGO-promoted, and government-sponsored Joint Forest Management (JFM). Despite their common goals of strengthening ecological security and meeting the subsistence biomass needs of the local people, they differ in their strengths and weaknesses. The basic argument is that rather than oscillating between a simplistic either/or model of ‘state’ or ‘village community’, there is a need to conceive of more complex arrangements in which forest areas are protected for multiple objectives, under the joint management of multiple institutions.
