Summary

This report aims to demonstrate the strong connection between gender-sensitive forest tenure reforms and improved livelihood indicators, forest conservation, and overall gender equity in South Asia, drawing on Nepal’s Community Forestry framework as a case study. Nepal’s diversity of customary and statutory forest tenure arrangements, pioneering experience in decentralized forest governance, and consolidated advances in grassroots civic networks with substantive women’s participation give ample opportunity to explore implications for gender equity in a wide range of forest tenure arrangements and practices.
