Regenerating Forests And Livelihoods In Nepal: A New Lease On Life
PDF File Size: 18.11 MB | Download   
Leasehold forestry is a new kind of property rights regime that started in Nepal about 20 years ago. It has dual objectives: regenerating degraded forest land and alleviating rural poverty. Under this system, the Nepalese government hands over state-owned, virtually open-access, degraded forest lands to a group of the poorest and most vulnerable households, on average ten in number, but ranging from five to fifteen. Each household is eligible to receive around one hectare of land in the form of a group lease contract. The duration of the lease is 40 years, with a provision to extend it another 40 years, covering four generations of the same family. The state requires the households to protect their forest lands against degradation from open grazing, forest fires, soil erosion, etc., either for the purpose of enhancing the natural regeneration of trees, shrubs and grass or for cultivating economically beneficial perennial and multi-purpose plants.
