Hello, Anita,

Thank you for sharing information about Community-based Forestry Supporters' Network (COFSUN) and its website. It's great to know that there is a network that convenes to protect and manage Nepal's natural resources.

Personally, I love community-based approaches because it involves the people who are living within the project area. I'm impressed also with COFSUN's development and progress with more than a hundred members. I love that it empowers women as well. :)

Thank you for sharing! We need projects like this especially that we are facing climate change.
