Résumé
The sustainable use of natural resources is a very much debated topic in global science. The use of natural resources is the most important human activity in terms of global environmental effects (www.pedz.uni-mannheim.de, 2009). Since 2002 Nepal’s forest are governed by so-called : Community Forestry User Groups (CFUGs). Previously, these forests were national forests regulated by the government. The CFUGs were established after the implementation of decentralisation policies of Community Based Natural Resource Management. “According to the database of the Community and Private Forestry Division of the Department of Forests, over 854.000 hectares of forest were handed over to 11.095 Forest User Groups by the end of May 2002. Most activities have been undertaken in the Mid-hills with little attention to areas above 2500m” (NBS, 2002). The focus for this thesis is on the sustainable use of medicinal and aromatic plants by linking different spheres of knowledge. There are global concerns about the biodiversity of species in the world, which led to forest conservation and the re-introduction of sustainable harvesting practices, which have certain consequences for local situations. I wondered about the local situations after the implementation of forest conservation policy in Nepal.
