About Us

It has been more than three decades since the concept of community forest has been embodied in Nepal. So far, 35 percent of the total population of the country has joined the community forest user group. Today, Nagampakha and Vanjar lands of the country have been transformed into greenery due to the effective implementation of community forest action plans. Today, community forest has become a dynamic and reliable means to introduce Nepal to the world public opinion. It has become a matter of pride for Nepalis only to know Nepal as a country of community forests before the world public opinion. In addition to this, community forest has become a dynamic means of livelihood for the people living in the rural communities of Nepal. On the other hand, the issue of sustainable management of community forest and empowerment of the consumer class is also seen as an urgent need. Similarly, the issue of implementing community forest programs in an effective and transparent manner is also an issue.
