This was the second phase project of ‘Adaptive Collaborative Management (ACM) in Community Forestry in
Nepal’ implemented in Kaski and Sankhuwasabha districts from 2004-2007. The main objective of the project
was to enhance the livelihood security of the rural people, especially the poorest and the most marginalized,
through enhancement of productive resources and sustainable management and governance of community
forest user groups. The outcome of this project can be seen in the improvement of various skills in documenting,
expressing views, networking and alliance making, such as the Non-Timer Forest Product (NTFP) network which
developed in SSB district has now started managing a small enterprise there. A VDC-level network has also
continued in the Bamdibhir CFUG of Kaski district. This research has increased the trust, communication and
relationship of CFUG with other stakeholders, and the attitude of the people towards equity in benefit sharing
(providing benefits to the poor and marginalized people) have been positive.
