    • Women agricultural producers, despite their significant participation and contribution to farming, are not recognized as farmers in official policy, and the society is not ready to accept them as farmers in their own right. Apart from the absence of their names in land records and poor legal awareness, women also suffer from gender biases in a patriarchal land administration and agricultural service environment.

    It has been proven time and again that integrating gender issues into forestry policies and practices by addressing women’s roles and needs is central to the sustainable management, conservation and governance of forests. In the Asia-Pacific region alone, there are about 450 million people who rely on forests for their livelihoods and 50% of them are women.

    An increasing body of evidence shows that forest governance and tenure reforms are central to mitigating a number of problems related to forests, and seriously affect forest-dependent people. On this backdrop, this assessment of South Asian forest tenure systems was initiated to provide a greater understanding of the tenure trends and status in the region that can potentially inform the policy process. This is the synthesis report of forest tenure assessments prepared by country consultants in six countries in South Asia: Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal, China and Pakistan.

    Debate over the potential of NTFPs for achieving ecosystem conservation and poverty alleviation has grown in the past decade. Concern has been raised that NTFP activities may not always provide the poor with the expected benefits, and could in some cases even act as a poverty trap (see discussion in Overview paper). Considering these concerns, the objective of this publication is to share experiences on how innovative approaches have led to successful outcomes such as increased access of poor forest dwellers to resources and markets, increased participation, and benefit sharing.
