Objectives of NTFP Centre of Excellence

Welcome to NTFP Zoological ParkNTFP Centre of Excellence (NCE) was established in 2008 under Tripura JICA Project to address the issue of NTFPs and value addition in a comprehensive manner, with the broad objectives:

  1. increasing the productivity of bamboo, cane & other Non-timber Forest Produce (NTFP) in the region through assured provision of quality planting material (QPM) and technical services;
  2. promoting livelihood improvement & poverty alleviation activities on an industrial scale and establishment of community common facility centres (CCFCs);
  3. capacity building of various stakeholders in handling bamboo, cane & other NTFPs; and
  4. facilitating marketing through establishing public-private partnership (PPP).
The specific objectives are:
State Botanical Garden
  1. to facilitate database generation and management of the NTFP
  2. to promote and facilitate NTFP activities as a means of livelihood for the masses on a sustainable basis and to develop bamboo and cane based entrepreneurship
  3. to disseminate technology information and enterprise development;
  4. to assist in marketing;
  5. to train forest fringe dwellers in farming, cultivation and management of bamboo and cane for development and marketing of handicrafts and also timber and non-timber forest produce; and
  6. to take up capacity building for harnessing the rich biodiversity of the North-east States.
Future Vision:
State Botanical Garden NCE has been envisaged “to become a premier institute in its area of specialization, providing services not only within the state, but in the entire NER in future”. It would be made into an “autonomous society” under Societies Registration Act, 1860. For the NCE to be sustained after the closure of Tripura JICA Project, it is necessary to have its “own income generation mechanism”. As designed, on closure of the Project, the existing Project Management Unit (PMU) with its assets would be integrated into NCE.
