Local people around forests are referred to as “stakeholders” for conservation of forests. Give reasons.
Local people know the practices to use these resources in a sustainable manner without causing any harm or damage to environment. Because as we have seen in our past how local people protect the Sal forests of Arabari and tribal women of Tehri-Garhwal district of UP protest against the felling of trees by hugging them. So the local people who live in or around forest are referred to as “stakeholders” for conservation of forests.
