It specifically assessed the other pro poor climate strategies such as REDD+ that impact and improve participation of local communities in forest management and more importantly explored the private sector integration into PFM processes in India. A number of Policy Briefs were prepared to contribute to the current forest governance debates in India to showcase its diversity and challenges in the new socio-political dispensation.
