Abstract: The seminar will focus on highlighting the basic socio economic constaints in the growth of forests in Pakistan. Forest rich region of the country would be presented as an example to compare the Macro level effects with Provincial data set.  Data is analysed by using econometric approach  which then is compared with community’s perspective. Limited information and data availability for forest economy in Pakistan remained a major constriant throughout the analysis. However, proxy variable setting helped to define a path in data management.  The under discussion research  is a part of a study that has rarely been conducted in Pakistan showing comparative Economic Analysis both at Micro and Macro scale.
