The initiative gathers force - LFLP, the second leasehold forestry project.

This chapter discusses the second leasehold forestry project, Leasehold Forestry and Livestock Programme (LFLP), in Nepal. To help Nepal implement the leasehold forestry approach as a national programme, IFAD designed the LFLP in 2005, upscaling the previous projects at a national scale. Once again, degraded national forest or part of it (forests having less than 20 per cent crown cover, open or barren forest land, failed plantation sites, shifting cultivation plots) are handed over to groups of people living under the poverty line. Specifically the LFLP aimed to: (i) improve household forage and tree crop production; (ii) improve household production of livestock, especially goats; (iii) provide access to microfinance institutions; (iv) support the government's capacity to implement leasehold forestry in a gender-sensitive way. The programme activities were organized into four components, with each component having a number of sub-components.
