The Government of Jammu and Kashmir is not only trying to protect the forests but is also trying to do smart forest resource management.

In this direction recently LG Manoj Sinha inaugurated Forest Resource Management Center in Jammu

He said, the new state-of-the-art facility and the technological advancements will go a long way in ensuring required protection and management of our forests.

The FRMC has been planned to scale up the use of modern technology such as GIS, Remote Sensing and digital tools like mobile application in protection and management of forests. The FRMC will also play a key role in digitalization of forest boundaries as well as for management of forests through geo reference based information and mapping.

He advised the department to maximise the use of technology in forest protection and climate change mitigation by protecting the natural resources, which will also support meeting of Sustainable Development Goals.

J&K UT is the third UT/State to implement the National Transit Pass System in the country. It replaces manual paper-based transit systems by online transit systems, and promotes agro-forestry activities that will in turn help in increasing farmer’s income.

Forest management and protection is vital to achieve climate stability and sustainable development goals. Reducing deforestation, tackling the loss of forest biodiversity and preservation of our natural heritage is critical for inclusive development.
