Forest Governance Data Visualization Portal

Our team has developed the Forest Governance Data Visualization Portal that is already operational and will continue to be updated and upgraded. This data portal is capable of visualizing spatial, temporal and cross-sectional data. The data portal will allow users to visualize data spatially both at Administrative (state, district, and sub-district) and Political boundary (assembly constituency and parliamentary constituency) levels. Users can also generate preferential summary reports, graphs/charts, maps etc. and provide the option to download these.

Community Forest Management Portal

The Community Forest Management Portal (CommFor) is designed to allow users to collect data on community forests and users, and view how and where their community forest stands in relation to other community forests in their country or in the world.

The Forest Governance multi-project research initiative focuses on upscaling assertion and recognition of tribal forest dwellers’ Community Forest Rights (CFR). Along with that it is also working towards strengthening analytical evidence attesting to the effectiveness of community-driven forest landscape restoration and its linkages with formal or customary rights of forest dwellers.
