DE&L PhD student Hari Luintel and P.I. Dr. Robert Scheller, along with PhD IGERT students Mary Ann Rozance and Diane Denham, will travel to Nepal to participate in meetings and conduct focus group discussions this month, thanks in part to a grant from the Institute for Sustainable Solutions (ISS). The research focuses on the impacts of the REDD+ (Reducing Emissions from Deforestation and Forest Degradation) program on community forestry in Nepal, and contributions by community foresters to REDD+ initiatives.

Following the trip, Hari and Rob will be presenting their research at the 2015 ISS Ecosystem Services Research-to-Action Symposium and the 2015 PSU Annual Sustainability Celebration.
