A program was established by HIMAWANTI and the Regional Community Forestry Training Center for Asia and the Pacific (RECOFTC) to disseminate information on efforts to reduce emissions from deforestation and forest degradation to 217 participants in the training. One session was hosted in Makwanpur, another hosted in Lalitpur. The training session also allowed for discussions to occur between participants, grassroots stakeholders, government and non-governmental organization representatives. This lead to the creation of a communal climate change action plan according to the REDD model that will be implemented within their respective regions. HIMAWANTI will be following up with the communities after six months to help facilitate the program’s implementation.
