Project Title: Comparative study of Best Practices in Forest Governance, Management and Regeneration
Abstract of Project :
My Fulbright project compares best practices of forest management and regeneration in various different physical contexts. It will also enhance my understanding of community-based natural resource regeneration models.  During the grant, I will try and network with U.S. based colleagues working in the area of Common Property Resources.  My Fulbright experience will strengthen Seva Mandir's efforts in forest management and regeneration as well as in establishing the new research initiative called the Land Research Cell (for research on Common Property Resources) that I am in the process of establishing at Seva Mandir.
