CFR Management Plan Template prepared by ATREE & TISS (Hindi, version 2)

The Community Forest Resource (CFR) rights provision of the Forest Rights Act 2006 (FRA), recognizes the communities’ rights to protect, regenerate, conserve and manage forest resources under Section 3 (1) (i). Once communities have received such CFR rights, they are supposed to make a plan for managing the CFR area. This is a requirement as per FRA Rules 2012 u/s 4(1)(e) and (f), which mandate that the Gram Sabha constitute a Community Forest Resource Management Committee among its members, and this committee will prepare a conservation and management plan to sustainably and equitably manage community forest resources. This plan will then be integrated with the micro plans or working plans or management plans of the forest department.
