Expert Answer:

The long-term character of forestry in regard to wood production, the multitude of forest benefits related to social demands, the characteristics of forests as ecosystem, the access and availability of forests for people and nature conservation issues are some of the main reasons why many groups of  people, organisations, institutions  and industries are interested in the utilization, management and protection of forests. They are willing to emphasize their specific interests in different ways and are interested in participating in the formulation and implementation that follow the successes of forest policies. The list of stakeholders of forests include:

i) the local and tribal people who live in or around forests and are dependent on forest produce for various aspects of their life.

(ii) the Forest Department of the Government which owns the land and controls the resources from forests.

(iii) the industrialists who use various forest produce, but are not dependent on the forests in any one area. 

(iv) the wild life and nature enthusiasts.
