According to bank document, the project's objective is "to improve sustainable forest management; and increase benefits from forests and to address climate change in selected landscapes in Nepal."
The proposed project will build on the following three premises: (i) while community-based forest management is a proven concept for managing forests for conservation and subsistence it has also the potential to meet Nepal’s demand for timber and increase income through the promotion of sustainable forest management; (ii) to meet Nepal’s demand for quality timber (sawn log) and non-timber forest products (through value-addition), small and medium forest-based enterprises need to be developed; and (ii) to make informed decisions on (i)-(ii), the new structures and institutional arrangements emerging from the federalization process need to fully understand and be able to fulfill their new roles and responsibilities related to natural-resources management, including forests.
The project will have 4 components: 1) Policy and capacity building support for new federal structures on sustainable forest management 2) Community-based sustainable forest management 3) Forest enterprise development 4) Project management, monitoring and learning
