  • Initiated in 2001, JFL is a peer reviewed journal that documents and disseminates the insights, lessons and innovations taking place in socio-cultural, political and economic aspects of environmental governance and rural livelihoods in Nepal. From 2014 onwards, JFL extends its scope beyond Nepal to South Asian region. We are open to all academic perspectives from political ecology and cultural politics, as long as they identify a relevant theoretical lens and draw implications for policy and practice.

Guidelines

The Journal of Forest and Livelihood aims to inform environmental policy process by facilitating dialogue among politicians, professionals, activists, researchers and policy makers. The Journal documents and disseminates the insights, lessons and innovations taking place in socio‐cultural, political and economic aspects of environmental governance and rural livelihoods in South Asia. Original scientific papers, short communications and review articles are published in the journal. In this connection, we welcome articles analysing contemporary issues on nature‐society interactions that have direct implications both on local livelihoods and resource sustainability. We particularly encourage the papers that are guided by critical social sciences perspectives and enriched by insights from deliberative governance, political economy, political ecology, social learning and institutional theories. The authors are fully responsible for the originality of the paper and formal correctness and should ensure that the paper is not published previously. Click here for more detail
