Asian Journal of Plant and Soil Sciences,
Collaborative Forest Management (CFM) is an approach of sustainable forest management in collaboration with the local people to achieve multiple benefits, maintaining ecological balance, generating economic returns and improving livelihood from the government managed forests. This study was carried out to assess the forest product distribution pattern in the collaborative forest of Bara district of central Terai by collecting the data from five key informants and fifty households. Collected data were analyzed both qualitatively and quantitatively and presented in tables. The results showed that the timber was demanded more by distant users whereas the pole, and fuel-wood were demanded more by nearby users. There is no provision of subsidy for the poor and Dalits. Resource distribution patterns should be done based on equity and plantation programs should be done to reduce the pressure in the core forest are suggested.
