NTFPs Marketing System in the Hills of Nepal: An Empirical Analysis on NTFPs Trade System in the Value Chain Perspectives
Far-west hill of Nepal is the habitat of high value NTFPs. People inhabiting in these hills have traditionally been collecting different NTFPs from different types of forests regimes. There are several challenges and constraints in the marketing of collected NTFPs. There is no system for public collection and dissemination of NTFPs market prices in this region.
This study identifies non-timber forest product (NTFP) resources and explores their medical uses in community forests in Tanahu district. The whole study area is divided into 5 vegetation groups, and from each type of vegetation, one random sampling is chosen and inventory is done at 0.5% sampling intensity.
