Objectif
1.) Determine an optimum management strategy to increase the quantity and quality of animal fodder from forest ground vegetation. 2.) Investigate a range of management practices to increase fodder and fuelwood production from indigenous and introduced tree species, paying particular attention to production in the context of social development.

Descriptif
A decrease in tree cover in Gujarat, Rajasthan and Madhya Pradesh is leading to an acute shortage of domestic fuelwood and fodder for draught animals. In addition to the environmental degradation and declining animal health, women, who are responsible for fuel and fodder collection, are faced with increasing demands.
