Centre for Social Forestry & Eco-Rehabilitation (CSFER), Allahabad
Centre for Social Forestry & Eco-Rehabilitation (CSFER), Allahabad was established in October 1992 as an advanced Centre under the umbrella of ICFRE, Dehradun. Presently, it is a centre of Forest Research Institute (FRI), Dehradun. The Centre aims to nurture and cultivate professional excellence in the field of social forestry and Eco-rehabilitation in the state of Uttar Pradesh.
Mandate of Division:
The centre’s mandate includes:
- Rehabilitation of Degraded eco-system: To conduct research to evolve suitable packages for eroded areas, stress sites, saline/alkaline soils with low moisture retentivity, degraded forests, pasture and grazing land, mined areas and other wasteland.
- Research and demonstration in social forestry, farm forestry and Agro forestry: To evolve appropriate technology and technological packages in social, farm and Agro forestry vis-à-vis prevailing tree crop combinations.
- Planting Stock Improvement: Identification and development of seed production areas, production of quality planting stock and standardization of planting techniques for forest species.
- Sustainable Forest Management/ Silviculture of forest species.
- Policy Research: To conduct socio-economic surveys to know the constraints and expectations in forestry sector.
- Forestry Extension :To organize the extension programs to ensure sustainable development of natural resource ecosystem.
