HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation Nepal. Forest cover change and tenure: A review of global literature. Environment and climate series 2011/4. Lalitpur, Nepal: HELVETAS Swiss Intercooperation Nepal, 2011.
From the Introduction:
"...this document aims to provide a brief overview of the international literature on the question of the relationship between forest tenure and forest cover change. The objective is to discover whether there is evidence that particular forest tenure regimes have significant relationships with forest cover change; in other words, whether they are successful at halting deforestation. This overview of the international literature is designed to complement a particular case study carried out in Nepal that analysed forest cover change in Dolakha district between 1990 and 2010 (Niraula and Maharjan 2011)."
