Bihar, a state located in the eastern region of India, is known for its rich cultural heritage and biodiversity. However, the state has been facing various issues related to deforestation, illegal logging, and land degradation. To address these issues, the government of Bihar has decided to implement a new forestry studies program this year.
This new program will focus on educating and training individuals in the field of forestry, with the goal of promoting sustainable forest management and conservation. The program will cover a wide range of topics, including tree biology, forest ecology, and conservation biology, as well as the social and economic aspects of forestry.
The implementation of this program is a significant step forward for Bihar, as it will not only help to conserve the state’s natural resources but also create employment opportunities for the local population. The program will also provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to address the complex challenges facing forests and natural resources in the state.
Furthermore, the program will also aid in the development of a sustainable and responsible forestry industry, which will have a positive impact on the state’s economy. It will also provide an opportunity for students to contribute to the conservation and sustainable management of Bihar’s forest resources, which will help to preserve the natural heritage of the state for future generations.
Bihar Opened Its First Forestry College in Munger
The country’s second (first one in Banglore) and Bihar’s first forestry college is in Munger and the college is affiliated to Sabour Agriculture University, Bhagalpur.
Spreaded in 96 acres, the cost to construct this college is around 231 crores.
Back on December 25, 2019, its foundation stone was laid by Chief Minister Nitish Kumar.
Here are the list of subjects that are going to be taught in the college:
- MSC Forestry
- BSc Forestry
- MSc in Environmental Science
- Certificate and Diploma
To get admission to the college, one should also have to qualify for its entrance test.
The seats for each course are yet to be decided by Sabour University, Bhagalpur.
What is so unique and beneficial about this college is, so far, after studying, students go to Dehradun for research work, but now, they can do the research work also right in Bihar.
So far, the state cabinet has approved the reinstatement of 274 personnel (that contains both the teachers and other personnel).
In conclusion, the implementation of a forestry studies program in Bihar is a step in the right direction for the state. It will not only help to conserve the state’s natural resources but also create employment opportunities and promote sustainable development. The program will also provide students with the knowledge and skills necessary to address the complex challenges facing forests and natural resources in the state. The program is a great opportunity for the people of Bihar to be a part of the conservation of the state’s natural heritage and contribute to the sustainable development of the state.
