Dear All Greetings we have best discussion group at this platform.
The views express by dear discussion group members are all valuable and need to be given importance in current policy framework.
I wish to put my view in this way that agriculture intensification may not be the solution for the sustainable agriculture. Since demographic transitions and climate change is being discussed a lot which is natural phenomenon what is important, to adjust ourselves in this changing arena without further degradation of natural resources.
Therefore, to harness the ecological services in a sustainable manner, development process need to be linked with conservation of existing resources with good status.
Thank you very much for having a broad discussion on the issues which are need of the current period. I feel monitoring of forests and allied activities a need of hours. Though we are already late nevertheless right action may balance. Therefore, I can suggest that awareness creation about the utility/importance of the forest must be foremost agenda of policy at local as well as at global level. It is because people must understand why forest are important and how one individual can contribute to conserve and protect the forest resources. Survival and existence are really becoming so difficult due to ever growing population resulting higher demand for forest products and posing threat for their degradation.
By monitoring forest will give an idea of balance and gap in demand and supply of forest goods and services. Therefore, it has to be monitored and brought to the notice to the public.
