Average quantity of crops damage was Agroforestry practices offer a unique opportunity to address CC impacts while securing livelihoods of the rural communities. For the study, five grasslands of CNP have been surveyed with vantage point observation Direct observation.
Likewise, review of operational plans, key informant survey, interaction with forest officials and leaders of community forest user groups were carried out.
The results showed annual increment of forest cover between was 0.
Therefore, conservation of grassland habitat is essential for both the florican and wild ungulates. This has been one of the factors in deterioration of environment and soil fertility in the country. Information were analyzed through, temporal matrix, descriptive statistics and correlation.
Through contribution of community forestry toward improvement of forest cover, condition and community wellbeing has been found positive in case of Mid-hill region. The trend of canids population was found to be decreasing. Both biophysical and socioeconomic variables were analyzed while gathering data.
Primary data of 30 indicators of socio-demographics, livelihoods, social networks, health, food, water and natural disasters and climate variability were collected through 90 randomly selected household respondents from 3 different communities. Nepal is primarily an agricultural country with about The aboveground biomass biomass of tree, sapling was estimated by using allometric equations and leaf litter, herbs and shrubs were estimated by following forest carbon measurement guidelines, revised of MOFSC, Nepal.
In the study site 16 hazardous debris slides and debris flow covering the area of m2 and volume of m3 occurred in 29, July While no region is immune, developing countries are more severely affected by soil degradation than developed. Forest inventories are used as a tool for monitoring community forests as it provided the basis for managers to guide forest management and harvesting.
Furthermore, OP revision, especially matching grant support and service provider mobilization had provided additional financial incentives to the forest officials.
Altogether 5 males and 3 females observed and recorded. But, analysis of its contribution on wider level development and household level income are limited due to lack of databanks. The methodology included key informants survey and focus group discussion for extracting the causes of forest fire in the area.
Payment for Ecosystem Services PES now is becoming an effective mechanism to provide incentives for enhancing and maintaining beneficial ecosystem.
At implementation level, there are 18 stakeholders identified having different roles, position in terms of power, interest and legitimacy. Local people are participating in lake conservation program in different way and willing to contribute more than what they have been doing.
Based on community perception the negative changes are due to road, settlement, timber smuggling, forest fire, uncontrolled grazing and encroachment while positive due to emigration, occupation shift, agroforestry practices and particularly by plantation, awareness and conservation activities after community forest handover.
The major anthropogenic problem for canids conservation were encroachment, retaliatory killings, illegal hunting, deforestation and grazing inside the reserve. Two sites; forestland and farmland were taken for the soil, topography, climatic condition.
Species Conservation Action Plan must be prepared with due consideration on the conservation of the species beyond the fences.
Due to which the studies have stated that area of lake is shrinking over the years by Erratic rainfall, hailstorm, longer drought period, flood, landslide and windstorm are the climatic hazards in the study area. Enabling environment for timber trading should be developed for more competitive market through construction of business environment, provision of business development services and financial services.
Furthermore, cost benefit analysis between the SciFM and previous management approaches revealed that cash flow would be high in the SCiFM, however benefit cost ratio would be high in previous management approaches.
This study applied Livelihood vulnerability index LVI to measure climate change vulnerability and analyzed adaptation practices in three communities namely Tilahar, Sarangkot and Bhatkhola of Parbat, Kaski and Syangja district respectively. Economic Valuation of Protected Areas: Potential of Payment for Ecosystem Services PES in Begnas Lake Watershed Beeju Poudyal Policy momentum and current research effort and initiations around ecosystems services have increased attention of the importance of direct and indirect contributions of ecosystems in improving the quality of life of human beings.
