Summary This book seeks to capture the leasehold forestry experience, with a special focus on the Leasehold Forestry and Livestock Programme, which has been a critical part of the leasehold forestry experience in Nepal for approximately 20 years. It describes the origins and evolution of the various leasehold forestry programmes and projects that have been launched in the country, as well as their objectives, components and activities, and concrete outcomes and impacts. However, it also emphasizes the story behind the numbers and the individual lives that were impacted by the initiatives. Testimonies are a strong element of the book, as they reveal the on-the-ground results of the leasehold forestry experience. Testimonies come from programme, project and government staff and, most importantly, the farmers themselves. It is hoped that the information and the stories captured in this book will help practitioners and policy-makers in Nepal and in all countries affected by the same development issues to understand and draw useful lessons about leasehold forestry, and adapt, mainstream and scale up those elements of leasehold forestry that will promote sustainable livelihoods for poor rural people while preserving the extremely precious natural resource on which their lives and livelihoods depend.
