Journal of Forest and Livelihood
Journal of Forest and Livelihood (JFL)

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.
