Details:

Objective: Leverage FECOFUN’s presence in more than 100 key offices at the local level to ensure community forestry is in the new budget and laws of Nepal’s new three-tier government. Preliminary negotiations and intelligence show that the Federal government alone could be persuaded to allocate between $5-10 million for community forestry, including community forest enterprise. At the provincial level, FECOFUN will engage with eight governments to ensure that they pass forestry laws which support community forestry.
