More than 70 per cent of the country's forests are controlled by 35, indigenous and rural communities. They are running successful forest enterprises while checking deforestation that was once rampant in According to the legal classification, national forests are identified for industrial processing for national benefits while local forests are for community interests.

Within this broad classification, in which accessibility for exploitation is regulated, there are also protected forests and forests on customary land (GRZ,Chileshe   Title: Forest Caron Stock Measurement: Guidelines for measuring carbon stocks in community-managed forests Organization: CCMIN, Asia Network for Sustainable Agriculture and Bioresources (ANSAB), Kathmandu, Nepal Author: Bhishma P.

"The stewardship and use of forests and forest lands in a way, and at a rate, that maintains their biodiversity, productivity, regeneration capacity, vitality and their potential to fulfil, now and in the future, relevant ecological, economic and social functions, at local, national, and global levels, and that does not cause damage to other ecosystems." Certification.

FSC certification ensures that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. The FSC Principles and Criteria provide a foundation for all forest management standards globally, including the FSC US National Standard (v) that guides forest management certification in the Besides, certification leads to better management of forest resources by promoting responsible trade in forestry.
