To ask Her Majesty's Government whether they will continue to support community forest enterprises in Nepal in order to create employment and eradicate poverty.

The UK Government does not currently have a dedicated forestry programme in Nepal. We are however a significant contributor to World Bank programmes in forestry in Nepal, including the recently agreed $24 million 'Forests for Prosperity' programme.
We also support forestry in the climate vulnerable west of Nepal through our £50 million Climate Smart Development programme. This programme includes work to increase afforestation, protect slopes and remove CO2, often working with local community forestry groups.
