  8. 8. Rationale of the study<br />Poverty alleviation,major issue for devt.<br />Leasehold forestry– tool of poverty alleviation<br />In LF, forest assets redistributed to poor <br />Emphasis on fodder and livestock mgmt.<br />HLFFDP focus on forage prod. to increase income by livestock<br />Emphasis on women<br />Deforestation affect them more<br />Their involvement make devt. sustainable<br />
  9. 9. Research objectives<br />Determine levels of HH income generation from HLFFDP,<br />determine the relationship between HLFFDP, livestock raising and forage production activities,<br />assess the status of poverty situation of the lessees',<br />analyse the impact of HLFFDP on women's overall development (focusing on household decision-making), <br />assess the role of HLFFDP in reducing work burden of men and women in line with livestock management, and<br />identify problems and benefits of LF<br />

Methodology<br />Studysite:Hadikhola VDC, Makwanpur district <br />Number of LFUGs (population):31 groups (204 HHs)<br />Sample size:100 lessee + 37 non lessee = 137 respondents<br />Sampling technique – purposive sampling<br />Data collection procedures<br />Secondary information<br />PRA<br />Household survey<br />Data analysis<br />simple descriptive statistics (mean/percentage), <br />regression analysis, lorenz curve and Gini ratio<br />Paired & independent sample mean test<br />

  18. 18. Major findings (contd.)<br />Exotic forage species introduced<br />Forage sufficiency increased (1%-96%)<br />Stall feeding adopted (a/c to 92% respondents)<br />Work burden reduced and time saved<br />Avg. time saved in fodder collection – 4.083 hrs <br />
  19. 19. Major findings (contd.)<br />Time reallocated in veg. farm and livestock rearing<br />86 % reported increase in food sufficiency <br />Different trainings given by HLFFDP<br />Capacity enhanced, confidence built up<br />Women empowered and decision making capacity increased – improving their quality of life<br />

  24. 24. Table 7. Benefits of leasehold forestry perceived by sampled lessee households.<br />
  25. 25. Conclusions<br />Average income increased of lessees but inequality did exist<br />Reduction in work burden, opening new scope for improving social & financial status of lessees due to save in timeE.g.: Livestock activities & commercial veg. cultivation increased<br />Fodder easily available - preference shifted from cow to buffalo, buck to castrated male goat <br />
