Abstract: 

Traditional husbandry of forest settlers is always propounded as socio-economico problem that prevent complete implementation of forest management plans. For resolving this problem, the organization of Forests, Rangelands and Watershed management designed two strategies; improvement and change of life style of rural in 20 family village, and strategy of movement and gathering of small village with population less than 20 families. Because of several reasons such as budget restriction, it is necessary to consider numerous quantitative and qualitative criteria to determine priorities. In this study, to determine priority of alternatives, criteria and sub-criteria (indicators) was arranged in a model evaluated using the analytic network process (ANP) with group decision making. Assessment of results confirmed optimum efficiency of this method. Furthermore, the result of evaluation showed indicators such as livestock and village population and husbandry (the source of family revenue) have the most importance in priority determination of alternatives.
