This chapter analyses the feasibility and effectiveness of forest resource management under the community management system, based on a case study of community forests in Nepal. The factors affecting the formation of community management systems are identified. The impact of community forest management on forest conditions is examined. It is argued that the benefit of community management exceeds the cost of establishing such as system only when forest resources have become sufficiently scarce and valuable.
