Rebuilding rural India: potential for further investments in forestry and green jobs

— sector: Forestry and natural resource management
— country: India

This article examines the variety of jobs that could be created in India by increasing the allotment of funds to forestry under the National Rural Employment Guarantee Act, which guarantees 100 days of employment to India’s rural population. Such investment would also help to meet national afforestation goals. This is an article of the Food and Agriculture Organization journal, Unasylva (No. 233, Vol. 60, 2009/3).
