dc.description.abstract "This paper is based on in-depth case studies of four Van Panchayats in Uttar Pradesh hills. Van panchayats in UP hills were born out of the conflicts and compromises that followed the settlements and reservations of forests in the hills by the turn of last century. Van Panchayats could be used to rehabilitate degraded forests, both civil and reserved, in the hill areas of Uttar Pradesh provided a pragmatic approach is adopted and the Van Panchayats are encouraged to participate in every stage of planning and execution. However, it is hard to gauge as to what extent this model can be applied to the plains of the country particularly in social forestry programmes. The heterogeneity of the cast system and the wide variations in social and economic power structure within a village in the plains may require some modifications in the model to make it effective." en_US
