Description :
From 1993 to 1996, the Nepal Australia Community Forestry project conducted four comparative land-use studies in Nepal's Sindhu Palchok and Kabhre Palanchok districts to evaluate the efficacity of Australian development assistance over a 19-year period to foster community forestry. Study used sets of air photographs taken in 1978 and 1992, supplemented by Rapid Rural Appraisal and other information, to assess land-use changes from 600 to 4,000 m in altitude. Whereas some grassland and shrublands were converted to forest on the lower slopes, there was rapid forest denudation on the upper slopes. - (SLD)
