Reclamation of East Khasi Forest (At Meghalaya)

Kajal Sharad Kanase, Ketan Kimmatkar

The structure and function of forest ecosystem is determined by the plant component more than any other living component of the system. The most important characteristics of the tropical and subtropical humid forests are their species richness, Heterogeneity and complex community organization. The state Meghalaya is known for its diverse, extensive and luxuriant forests. Due to both urbanization and its ethnic culture the east khasi forest of the state, undergoes vegetal degradation processes, which is decreasing forest cover area and changing the original quality of the forest cover. The scope of biodiversity is not restricted to species diversity and populations, but also encompasses the strong dependence of local communities on the ecosystem services for subsistence and livelihood purposes. As the definition of REDD- Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation + suggests, the regime provides an opportunity for not only carbon oriented management of the natural resources but also the scope to develop biodiversity conservation as an important objective of the management of natural ecosystems. In this paper majors taken by the REDD Organization are discussed.
