Indian Forest Services officers to attend Environmental Policy Program at Maxwell

IFSThe Environmental Policy program for the Indian Forest Service focuses on developing the officers’ understanding of the changing scene for environmental policy making and its implementation internationally and domestically – with a focus on developing leadership and management skills to help them implement these changes. The two weeks in the U.S. focus on sessions led by academics, practitioners and policy makers who shared their experience and studies of various policy processes and the success and failures of implementing these policies. Following their sessions in Syracuse, the group heads off to New York City for site visits including one with the United States Forest Service. The program comes to a conclusion at the Indira Gandhi National Forest Academy in Dehradun, India.

The Maxwell School of Syracuse University, the Indian Institute of Management – Bangalore (IIMB), SUNY-Environmental Science and Forestry (ESF) and the University of British Columbia (UBC) have partnered with the Indian Forest Service (IFS) to deliver multiple one month mid-career training programs for senior IFS officials. The IFS Phase V Mid-Career Training Program is targeted towards IFS officers with approximately 24-28 years of service who are currently serving as Chief Conservator of Forests and Additional Principal Chief Conservator of Forests.
