Guided by local partners, the team observed forest management activities, REDD activities of the project and discussed major challenges. The DW team also interviewed different stakeholders involved in the REDD+ Himalaya project.

ICIMOD has been working in Gorkha district on REDD+ with local communities and forestry officials for the past eight years. The project prepares local community to participate in the international REDD+ climate policy while simultaneously strengthening grassroots institutions for better forest governance.
