Management Plan for Forests, Wildlife Sanctuaries, National Parks and Biosphere Reserves

Planning is an active process requiring careful thought about what could or should happen in the future and involves the coordination of all relevant activities for the purpose of achieving specified goals and objectives. Planning is an integral component of forest management; is about determining and expressing the goals and objectives which government, rural communities or companies have, and for deciding the targets and steps that should be taken in order to achieve those objectives.

A range of information is used in planning to evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of alternative courses of action, which enables preferred options to be determined, coordinated with other activities, and expressed in writing. Information should be of good quality. Information of questionable quality should either be discarded or, if used, it should be noted that it is of poor quality and one of the activities of the plan should be acquiring better quality information.

The cost and estimates will be area specific. We enter a MOU with the respective department. The MOU states mutually decided terms and conditions, the fee and timeline so that complete transparency is maintained.

Project Evaluation

Evaluation is often seen as an “end of project cycle” exercise. Evaluation, however, plays a distinct role at all stages of the project cycle. Evaluation is a process which:

  • supports a project, by measuring the extent to which the objectives are met,
  • identifies achievements,
  • identifies areas for improvement,
  • encourages decisions to be taken, including changes to objectives and the project methodology.

Findings of evaluation report are a precious input into the decision-making and planning processes. Evaluation enables continuous improvement and learning through implementation of recommendations, understanding and incorporation of lessons learned from past evaluations into new strategies, programmes and projects.

Our team is capable of carrying out evaluation of various types of project. We enter a MOU with the respective department. The MOU states mutually decided terms and conditions, the fee and timeline so that complete transparency is maintained.

Our Services for Sustainable Development

  • Wildlife Mitigation Plan

Wildlife mitigation is the practice of avoiding, minimizing, or compensating for (offsetting) impacts to wildlife. The most logical step in wildlife mitigation is to use the growing body of case studies to assess the effectiveness of specific mitigation efforts, and to use the results to derive “lessons learned” that will help shape future mitigation strategies and projects. The Wildlife Mitigation Plan will assist project planning and execution so that potential effects on wildlife habitat, movements, and mortality can be managed. The plan incorporates applicable community concerns and address regulatory requirements that will guide the decision-making process for wildlife management near the Project

Our team is capable of developing the wildlife mitigation plan for various types of project. We enter a MOU with the concerned developer. The MOU states mutually decided terms and conditions, the fee and timeline so that complete transparency is maintained.

 

  • Conservation Plan

A ‘Conservation Plan’ includes various plans that are essential for conservation of environment, forest and wildlife while developing a developmental project. It includes Environment Management and Mitigation Plan, Wildlife Mitigation and Conservation Plan, Corridor Plan (if applicable), Fire Management Plan and Monitoring and Evaluation Plan.

Our team is capable of developing the Conservation Plan for various types of project. We enter a MOU with the concerned developer. The MOU states mutually decided terms and conditions, the fee and timeline so that complete transparency is maintained
