This study analyses the approach of 'enclosing forests' implemented under the Project in Rajasthan which aimed at protecting and regenerating forests and securing long-term access of and benefits to local communities. Forest enclosures established in 13 villages of Udaipur and Baran districts and covering 1289 hectares of forest land represent a collaboration between local communities, the Forest
Department and partner NGOs - Foundation for Ecological Security and Sankalp Sanstha. Through an in-depth study of forest enclosures in four villages and interaction with communities and key stakeholders, this study presents the strengths as well as weaknesses of this approach and offers valuable lessons for replication and policy.
