Welcome to Siddhant Campus, under Faculty of Forestry (FOF), Hetauda, Makawanpur of Agriculture and Forestry University (AFU), Rampur, Chitwan. As the Director, it is my great pride and privilege to introduce you to a community of professionals with a sincere commitment to Natural Resource Management.

Growing populations are putting pressure on forests, and climate change is making trees more vulnerable to fires and migrating pests. Carbon management and urban forestry are the emerging need and challenges for forestry professionals. Along with managing and promoting forest ecosystems while making them available for human use, the current generation of professionals needs to educate the generalists and address the real-world problems of natural resource sustainability and protect the planet. It is therefore, there has never been a pressing need for forestry professionals than now. We would like to thank Faculty of Forestry (FOF), Agriculture and Forestry University (AFU) for granting us the privilege to tailor professionals, who will nurture the nature and ourselves.
