1. Dangi, Roshani. Econometric Analysis of the Causes of the Deforestation in Nepal.

Degree: MS, Environmental Studies (Arts and Sciences), 2009, Ohio University

This research investigated the effects of social, economic and other factors contributing to the forestry sector of Nepal. Based on literature and socio-economic conditions of Nepal, various variables are included as main cause of deforestation in Nepal. The concept of econometrics and regression model is used. The results indicated a significant link between the several included variables and the changes in forest land in Nepal. The results also suggest that increased productions of forest products and social unrest in the country are the main negative contributors to the forestry sector of Nepal. Social Unrest is found to be the most significant variable affecting the forest land of Nepal. From this study, timber production found to be the major culprit causing more negative effect to the forest land of Nepal compared to fuelwood production. Furthermore, the various policy efforts taken indicate that Community Forestry is the best policy option available but some changes needs to be done to avoid the loopholes and improve its efficiency. Advisors/Committee Members: Boyd, Roy G. (Committee Chair).
