Posted on: 15 April 2017
SPARC has been assigned the task of implementation of a Web-GIS application including its operationalization in all Project Divisions under the JICA (Japan International Cooperation Agency) assisted Uttarakhand Forest Resource Management Project (UFRMP).
UFRMP targets to restore about 750 degraded forests spread across 13 forest divisions in the Himalayan State of Uttarakhand through community participation and improve livelihood of forest dependent communities (Van Panchayats).
The Web GIS application shall have real-time tracking of project interventions through location-based mobile data collector utilities to be made operational at each Project Forest Division and shall serve as an effective monitoring system to enable effective eco-restoration and forest governance.
