The Machhapuchhre Development Organisation (MDO) was established in 1989 to enhance the quality of life of the local people, especially the poor, through nature conservation and integrated community development. This study examines the feasibility and legal basis of creating a stakeholder-based institution in the region to enable the community to self-manage the development of Panchase Lekh and adjoining settlements and to recommend modalities for its strengthening. The study identifies the major natural resources in the MDO project area and assesses their potential for utilization. It also assesses the effectiveness of income generating activities conducted by MDO and the constraints faced by it.
