Abstract

This study suggests that JFM households receive higher economic benefit after JFM: the physical increase of forest related works has a positive impact on the prices of the same influencing higher hours (time) of work which help them increase higher annual per capita net real income. The poorer the households are according to their economic status, greater is the dependence on forest and so greater is the extent of involvement in low return forest activities (NTFPs) and forest wage work. It might indicate that JFM plays a positive role for economic security of the forest fringe households.
