Community Forests in Nepal can be utilized to reduce carbon emissions from deforestation and degradation (REDD). However, if REDD+ activities are to be effective and equitable, communities need to receive technical support and mentoring that contributes to institutional strengthening, in addition to any monetary payments for carbon sequestration. Policy makers should also look into the potential for capturing carbon by making government-managed forests more sustainable. Carbons sequestration may be higher if forests currently directly managed by the government can be converted to more efficient regimes through scientific forestry.
