It also provides an account of different laws enacted in different time periods Nepal and which transferred management of forests from government controlled to control by community forest user groups (CFUGs). The study found that the CFUGs were able to conserve the forest along with restoring degraded forest land, resuming greenery, increased supply of forest products, and promoting income generation and community development for improving the livelihoods of the rural people, especially the women of rural people, especially the women.

Conflict in the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh: An Unimplemented Accord and Continued Violence

In the second book “Ethnic Subnationalist Insurgencies in South Asia: Identities, Interests and Challenges to State Authority” by Jugdep S. Cheema (ed.), Ishtiaq Jamil and Pranab Kumar Pandey, University of Rajshahi in Bangladesh, contribute with a chapter on “Conflict in the Chittagong Hill Tracts in Bangladesh: An Unimplemented Accord and Continued Violence”.

Abstract

This article analyzes the dynamics of the conflict in the Chittagong Hill Tracts region of Bangladesh. This study argues that violations of human rights by law enforcement agencies and Bangali settlers against indigenous people continue even after the signing of the 1997 peace accord. Furthermore, peace remains elusive because of the "top-down" nature of that accord.
