Syed Hasnain Abbas

Research and development is the generation of new knowledge. In a Forest context, it is an activity that department undertake in order to develop new products, processes or services, or improve those that already exist. In order to do this, The forest department often take on risk. This is because uncertainties exist around if what we are attempting is technologically feasible, or, more commonly, don’t know how the field officers will achieve their objectives in practical terms.

When developing a new product, process or service, or refining an existing one, R&D is one of the earliest phases. Experimentation and innovation is often rife at this stage, along with risk. The R&D cycle often begins with ideation and theorising, followed by research and exploration and then into design and development.
