[Ambassador report] community forest model in Nepal

"Green Ban Nepal's wealth (Green forest is Nepal's wealth)" is one of the most popular slogans in Nepal and to some extent reality. The community forest is a part of the national forest which has been transferred to the user group for collective development for its development, conservation and utilization.The Community Forest Program was specifically designed to meet the subsistence needs of the local people, as well as to protect the forest by transferring user rights of forest resources to local users.

In community forests, parts of the government forest are transferred to a group of local families known as the Community Forest Users Group (CFUG). They formulate a forest management plan as needed and the forests are managed according to the plan for the use of resources as well as for conservation and conservation purposes The basic assumption of the CFUG is that users are united and able to manage community forests for their mutual benefit.However, the needs and interests of households participating in community forest depend on their financial status. Poor people want to use it more for livelihoods such as fodder, food and wood, while rich people are more interested in its commercial value as wood. According to the social forestry program of the Government of Nepal, activities carried out in the community forest are concerned with generating economic benefits and improving environmental and social conditions.Community forests can be used to help support these processes, as well as why families are involved in a community forest management group(CFMG).

1. The following are some of the hopes for the environment ecological benefits. Through community forests, CFMGs can contribute to the restoration of damaged forests, conserve water sources, reduce fire incidents, protect wildlife, improve forest cover, and CF areas can be a recreational area for outdoor visitors. However, there are limited empirical documents on actual practices and ecological impacts, especially over time.

2.Social literature suggests that there is a great potential for community forestry to increase cooperation among members of CFMGs and build local governance capacity. Especially in rural areas of Nepal, they always have support at wedding parties and other occasions as part of each event where they support each other. A sense of ownership can be fostered in the wild, which protects CF against outsiders illegally taking over resources.There is also a way for rural residents to formally express their interests and preferences by attending CFMG meetings.

    Hello Bal Krishna

    I heard that Nepal is rich is forest resources. Certainly it is not easy to take care of all and keep it in its best condition.
    This forestry program in Nepal looks like a perfect way to preserve the forest resources. I think the main point about the program is that it gives the local people some kind of ownership and responsibility to save the forest. With those thoughts, they will learn by themselves how to stay balanced with the nature.

    Thank you for the detailed explanation about the great program in Nepal.

    Keep up the great work.
