Abstract: "As practiced today in Nepal, community forestry is quite different from what was envisioned when the first legislation was promulgated in 1978. The original community forestry policy promoted the hand-over of national forests to local government authorities. As foresters and legistlators have learned how to implement effective community forestry, policy and legislation have been revised many times. These changes have facilitated the development of a workable methodology for implementing community forestry."
