The aim of the course:
This course aims to expose graduate students to the ecosystem based multiple use forest management planning concept focusing on the balance between production of goods and services.
 
Programme OutcomesCTPOTOA
Upon successful completion of the course, the students will be able to :
PO - 1 : Stratify a forest landscape into social, ecological and economical values and generate a map of stratification1,4,53,4
PO - 2 : Bring up voices of stakeholders into a coherent decision making environment1,4,5,63,4
PO - 3 : Prepare an ecosystem based forest management plans that will most likely satisfy stakeholders needs and expectations1,4,5,65,6
PO - 4 : Lay out decision scenarios, choose an appropriate and defend it1,4,5,86,5
