Forest resource assessment in Nepal

The purposes of the Forest Resource Assessment (FRA) Nepal project are to assess forest resources and tree resources outside forest and to provide fresh data on the state, use, management and trends of these resources. The assessment covers a large range of biophysical areas and provides a broad and holistic view of land use for the country as a whole. In particular, the information will be used to plan, design and implement national and international policies and strategies for sustainable use and conservation of forestry ecosystems, and to understand the relationship between resources and users of the forest and tree resources.
