RCDC pursued a bio-resource governance programme during the period of 2009-11 in four tribal districts of Odisha with an objective of developing model GPs on bioresource governance. Land use being a major factor in natural resource governance, changes in land utilization, particularly forest land diversion, has been a matter of concern for these areas. In this backdrop, RCDC intended for an in-depth analysis of the dynamics of the changes in land utilization pattern in the state with focus on forest land diversion. The work was assigned to a consultancy firm SERVICE which submitted its report in 2011. The study was carried out under the project supported by Broederlijk Delen, one of RCDC’s trusted partners in development.
