Environment and History

The Bureaucratisation of Forest Management in India

Donald M. Schug

Environment and History 6(2000): 229-242

Reform and reorientation are words often heard today within government forest administrations. Efforts to change, however, are seldom accompanied by any analysis of the nature and origins of forest bureaucracies and how their structures may resist reform. This paper employs the case of India's forest administration to illustrate how the political-economic environment, authoritarianism and internal culture have militated against forest conservation and the incorporation of rural interests in forest management.
