Baseline Forest Carbon Assessment in Eastern Nawalparasi, Nepal

ANSAB and Manfred-Hermsen-Stiftung (MHS), with funding support from the International Climate Initiative (IKI) and MHS are implementing the project ‘Nature Conservation and Agroforestry Production in Rural Communities’ in the four municipalities. This project contributes to biodiversity conservation and climate change mitigation, and enhances livelihoods and the development perspectives of local communities through improved community-based management of forests and farms.

This study report presents a comprehensive assessment of forest carbon stock in the four municipalities of eastern Nawalparasi, namely Kawasoti Municipality, Madhyabindu Municipality, Hupsekot Rural Municipality, and Binayee-Tribeni Rural Municipality, with the underlying purpose of generating the baseline of forest carbon stock in order to observe the changes taking place as a result of sustainable forest management activities induced by the project.
