Abstract

In an attempt to examine the extent of risk faced by households under gender sensitive JFM programme in West Bengal, this study suggests that JFM programme could reduce more risk related hardship for JFM households by their increase (decrease) in time and income on forest (non-forest) related works which non-JFM households fail to receive. Within JFM villages, female FPC-households not only yield higher per capita net real income but also contribute female’s higher share of their family income, which they only receive from forest source, than their men’s after JFM situation indicating higher diversification of forest works in female FPC-villages.
