Depleting forests, silent spectators: who should manage Nepal's Terai forests?



Depleting forests, silent spectators: who should manage Nepal's Terai forests?



Journal of Forest and Livelihood 2(1): 34-40



This paper, based on observations drawn from Siraha district (Nepal), highlights some of the complexities involved in the management and use of Terai forests. It is argued that while the Terai forest needs a decentralized management approach, it requires a participatory approach different from the hill model, which tends to focus on people living in the proximity of the forest.
