Under this study, TERI is preparing Afforestation/Reforestation Clean Development Mechanism (A/R CDM) projects in the areas under UP Participatory Forest Management and Poverty Alleviation Project (UPPFMPAP - http://www.uppfmpap.org/), which is under implementation in the 20 forest divisions spread over 14 districts of the state of Uttar Pradesh. Funded through a soft loan provided by Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), UPPFMPAP aims at restoring degraded forests, augmenting forest resources and improving livelihood for the local forest dependent communities, thereby improving environment and alleviating poverty. This empowerment is sought to be achieved by promoting sustainable forest management, including Joint Forest Management plantation and community development.
