  • This research is based on case study analysis and was conducted to evaluate the profitability of three different types of plantation - strip, agroforestry, and woodlot - raised through a people-oriented forestry program in Bangladesh.
  • By interviewing participants at various stages in the process, conducting focus group discussions, and accessing annual costs from the Tangail Divisional Forest office, the researchers were able to analyze net present values and benfit-cost ratios.
  • The study concludes that, based on governmental and non-governmental funds assisting the program, that while all three plantation types were profitable to people, agroforestry and strip plantations were overall profitable given the overall investment.
