Abstract:

"Community forestry focuses on the link between forest resources and livelihoods and contributes to forest conservation and reforestation. It is widespread in Nepal, with a very high proportion of the rural population involved, and is widely recognised as one of the most successful examples of community forestry in Asia. Through a combination of literature reviews and original research, this volume explores key experiences of community forestry in Nepal over the last four decades as a model for improving forest management and supporting local livelihoods. With new global challenges of climate change, environmental degradation and conservation, as well as demographic and social changes due to large-scale labour migration and the growing remittance economy, this book shows how community forestry in Nepal has responded to the opportunities and challenges presented, and how it might move forward. As a relatively 'mature' approach to community-based natural resource management, the outcomes and implications of these responses in Nepal have relevance to community forestry and community-based approaches to natural resource management around the world that are also experiencing global pressures and opportunities."--Provided by publisher.
