IIFM – Indian Institute of Forest Management

Indian Institute of Forest Management was established in 1982 as an autonomous institution by the Ministry of Environment and Forests, Government of India. The vision of IIFM is to be among the leading international institutions in the area of environment, forest and development management and be respected, both nationally and internationally, for its outstanding contributions in the fields of education, training, research, consultancy and thoughts’ leadership

In 1978 , SIDA contributed a sum of Rs. 50 lacs to the Government of India which partly financed the collaboration fees for entering into an agreement with Indian Institute of Management, Ahmadabad (IIMA) for building the proposed IIFM. The ensuing philosophy behind creation of IIFM were arrived at a seminar held at IIM Ahemdabad in 1979 which recommended that :

  • IIFM should be a national Institute of education in forestry sector, aiming at balanced development, conservation and utilisation of a forest based ecological system in India, consistent with the economic and social development of the nation
  • Research, education, training and consultancy activities of the proposed IIFM should be directed towards meeting management education needs of the entire forestry system, particularly the forest departments and forest development corporations
  • It should have a wide enough degree of freedom to develop its particular identity and the culture needed within an educational setting to foster this identity
  • As the leader in its field, be concerned with pushing the frontiers of knowledge, providing specialised knowledge to various parts of system which related to this field and helping the world of practice to use this knowledge
