Biodiversity and livelihood of local communities are always interlinked with one another. More than half of the population in our country depends on agriculture and forest for their livelihood. Our main objective is to promote community forest management and natural recourses and biodiversity conservation to improve livelihoods of marginalized community and farmers in the village.
Climate change and urbanization are the main reason for the deterioration our biodiversity. In such circumstances conducting a community forest programme is vital as it would improve the capacity of people based on agro forestry and ultimately enhance their livelihood and food security. It would also improve the productivity of agriculture land. The project also paves a way towards the fulfillment of the basic needs of poor people by managing resources in a sustainable way.
Under the FSN’s Community forest project we focus on sustainable forest management, community participation in biodiversity management, ecosystem management, capacity building and making people aware about the importance of natural resources and bio diversity.
