Why aren't Poor People Benefiting More from Community Forestry?

Research reports

This paper summarises the findings of socio-economic baseline study undertaken amongst four Forest User Groups (FUGs) in Nepal focusing on levels of participation, understanding of, and benefit from, community forestry activities. Poorer households were found to benefit significantly less than wealthier households, and in some cases may even be directly disadvantaged by the advent of community forestry in their villages.
