Forest Policy and the Tribals: The challenges of tribal development



Primary authors


The tribals depend on forest to meet their need particularly related to food, fuel and fodder. Apart from these and various other items, they also get the medicinal plants from the forest. But due to several external and internal means they are now getting out of it. If herbal medicine was not available properly from the forest then there will be no more existence of traditional medicine system and also as a result, they are no more available to the traditional medicine men to which they are so essential for treatment. It has been revealed that though the forest near the village situated was very intimately connected with tribal economy. Several forest acts and policies have been made or enacted but the interest of the forest dwelling tribes and other local population has not been brought under the consideration.
