The announcement of the British Prime Minister in October 1988, that the UK would direct more aid to the wise and sustainable use of forest resources in developing countries prompted the Karnataka Forest Department to approach the UK Overseas Development Administration, (ODA). The Karnataka Forest Department (KFD) already had close linkages with ODA, the State's programme being partly funded by ODA and the World Bank. In addition the support of ODA had been utilized by KFD for a major reforestation programme of Mysore Paper Mills.
