An interesting article on how communities in Nepal are working collectively towards conserving forests. The Hindu : News / National : Forest communities in Nepal grappling with climate change.

Reminds me of the Ralegan Siddhi story where community action under Anna Hazare‘s guidance began with a watershed development programs, but cascaded into multiple economic activities that alleviated the village’s poverty.
