The Indian Institute of Forest Management is a sectoral management institute, which constantly endeavors to evolve knowledge useful for managers in the area of forest, environment, natural resources management and allied sectors. It disseminates such knowledge in ways that promote its application by individuals and organizations. Natural resource management is a dynamic process as it is intertwined with changing social, cultural, economic, and ecological factors at the local level. Further, in the era of globalization, many of the management issues are not only influenced by local governance but also by national and international governance/treaties/conventions. It is, therefore, important that professionals working in this sector are trained in a way that they can contribute in managing the resource in a comprehensive way. India being one of the responsible nations and signatories to many international treaties related to natural resource management and allied sector, has to constantly upgrade its professionals engaged in NRM to equip them with skills and knowledge in order to manage its rich natural resources effectively. Realizing the need of specific skills and knowledge, the institute has designed one-year M.Phil in Natural Resource Management with a focus to acquiring conceptual and analytical abilities in relation to the field realities, required for managing natural resources effectively. The course lays emphasis on self-growth through seminars, fieldwork, case studies, and classroom discussions. The program is called as M.Phil. (Natural Resource Management) and is affiliated with Saurashtra University, Rajkot, Gujarat. The degree shall be granted by the Faculty of Science, SaurashtraUniversity,Rajkot and the course will be conducted by IIFM at the Institute’s campus in Bhopal.
