The Forest-based Micro-enterprise (FBME) component of the Environment and Forest Enterprise Activities
(EFEA) Project, while assisting in the development of community forestry, takes steps to create forest-based
micro-enterprises for the purpose of increasing rural incomes through the sustainable use of natural resources.
The EFEA project aims to increase the sale of high-value forest products and enhance the level of women’s
participation in managing and controlling resources. New ERA, in collaboration with the Bio-diversity Support
Program USA, implemented the FBME project in Dang, Pyuthan, Rolpa, Salyan, Rukum, Bardiya, Banke and
Dolpa districts in the Mid-Western Development Region of Nepal. The main objective of the project is to support
local communities to establish NTFP based micro-enterprises. The project strategy is to equip project partners
and local communities with new information for sustainable forest-based micro-enterprises
