New Establishment Of Training Facility

This subcomponent is included after discussions with the high level officers of the Government of Sikkim such as the Chief Secretary of the state on November 21th, 2009. Sikkim is one of the ten target states under the ?Capacity Development of Forest Management and Personnel Training Project?, being funded by JICA and implemented by the Ministry of Environment & Forests, Govt. of India. Sikkim was originally expected to receive necessary funds for establishment of the training facilities in the state through the above stated project.

However, considering the fact that, at one time, the Forest Department would have two projects to deal with , which would make management of the two projects difficult, and also the fact that there might be delays in implementation of the ?Capacity Development of Forest Management and Personnel Training Project?, the training facilities which are expected to be constructed under the ?Capacity Development of Forest Management and Personnel Training Project? shall included in this project so that training to the frontline staff will be conducted in a holistic and timely manner under one project.
