Description

In order to have an adequate research back up for development of forestry sector in the northeastern region of the country, the Institute came into existence in April 1988. Its origin dates back to 1976 when a Regional Centre of Forest Research Institute, Dehra Dun, was established at Burnihat (Assam) to extend knowledge on forestry related issues through research, education and extension in general and to support forestry research in northeastern states. The Centre advanced steadily in terms of infrastructure and established itself as a nucleus for research on forestry and ecology related issues of the region. It was upgraded as Institute of Rain and Moist Deciduous Forest Research (IRMDER) now known as the Rain Forest Research Institute (RFRI). The Institute has evolved into one of repute, delivering yeoman service in the field of forestry resources and technology extension to all NE states including Sikkim. The multidisciplinary scientific manpower of the Institute delivers need based technological achievements in forests science leading towards conservation, protection, restoration and management of forest resources. The tested technologies, developed under different research projects, are transferred to the stakeholders through its Regional Capacity Building Programmes under Demo Village and Van Vigyan Kendras (VVKs) in the states. The headquarters of the Institute is located at Jorhat in Assam, while its Centres are located at Aizawl and Agartala
