Abstract: "This article assesses validity of the blame 'Community Forestry discriminates against the lower caste and economically disadvantaged people in Nepal'. Case studies, using two sets of database on the Forest User Groups (FUGs) of Lalitpur and Kabhrepalanchok Districts revealed that People have benefited from Community Forests regardless of wealth and caste through augmented supply of forest products for farm-household activities. The paper recommends for the continuation of subsistence oriented Community Forestry Policies in Nepal."
