Bangladesh houses a substantial amount of forests. People extract a range of goods and services from the forests. Although the accounted contribution of the forests in the national economy is reasonable, the social and ecological importance is immense. Although the Bangladesh government has taken several initiatives to protect them, the forests are being depleted due to many reasons. It is believed that in future, the degradation will he aggravated because of increasing population and persistent poverty. Demand for environmental goods will rise but will not be met because of continued forest degradation. In such situations multistakeholder-based conservation and forest extension activities are necessary to better manage the sector.
