Measuring impacts of community forestry program through repeat photography and satellite remote sensing in the Dolakha district of Nepal
Reducing the rate and extent of tropical forest loss is a critical component of climate change mitigation efforts. A global agreement to Reduce Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation (REDD+) seeks to transfer funds from developed countries to developing countries such as Nepal in exchange for verifiable emissions reductions.
Nepal's community forestry has adopted micro-credit as a major activity to provide additional benefits to women and the poor. The paper aims to investigate whether the micro-credit benefits women, as expected, and uses primary data of 84 community forest user groups from different five districts and 408 individuals who obtained loans from the community forest user group funds.
