Welcome to Department of Environment, Forests & Climate Change Department
The Forests in Mizoram are the state’s priceless possession forming a part of the Indo-Burma Global Biodiversity Hotspot. The section that lie within Mizoram and which dominates its ecosystem envelops a bewildering complexity in plant, animal and bird life.
The Forest Department works with a vision to achieve well-stocked high-quality forests with rich bio-diversity for maintaining ecological balance and ensuring environmental stability while meeting the forest-based needs of the local people. Its efforts are aimed at increasing the area under forest cover and enhancing the quality of existing forests with active participation of the local people.
Most of the officials in the Department have been suitably trained in the subjects related to the management of forests and the preservation of wildlife. The trained manpower is the core strength which enables the Department to effectively implement various planned schemes. In addition, active involvement of the local people through the mechanism of “Joint Forest Management” has significantly helped the Department in its efforts to enrich and protect the valuable forest wealth of the State.
