Beyond the two projects, a national perspective and institutional context.

Moreover, the leasehold forestry concept and approach are being incorporated into other initiatives. The Swiss Development Cooperation worked with leasehold forestry in Dolkha and Ramechap and also supported incorporating leasehold forestry into community forestry. Similarly, the DFID-funded Leasehold Forestry Programme developed public land forestry in line with the leasehold forestry concept. The Biodiversity Sector Programme for Siwaliks and Tarai (BISP-ST) of the government and SNV also developed various models of public land leasehold forestry in its eight Terai districts. The WUPAP project being implemented by the Ministry of Cooperatives and Poverty Reduction of the local government with support from IFAD, has basically been designed following the concept of leasehold forestry in high-altitude regions. This chapter discusses the national perspective and institutional context concerning these two projects.
