Duration: June 2015 to January 2016
Given the large scale of out-migration taking place all over the country, there is no sector in Nepal that remains unaffected by it and this is true for the forestry sector as well. Migration en masse and remittance migrants sent back have had several implications on land use, labour relations, rural livelihoods and institutions. The context in which local forestry institutions function and how forest management and forestry sector interventions take place has changed. The study aimed to understand this changed context and how local forestry institutions are adapting.
