The Federation of Community Forests Users Nepal (FECOFUN) has asked its stakeholders to facilitate easy access of people, especially those from the poor and marginalised communities, to firewood.

The federation said it is very difficult time people as they are facing an acute shortage of fuel due to Indian blockade while the festive season is just a few weeks away.

“We urge our community user groups in various districts to effectively manage the use of fuel wood to help those in need of alternative energy for cooking,” said Ganesh Karki, FECOFUN chairman. The federation has also asked the government to help local communities dependent on forest resources for cooking tackle the fuel crisis. Karki also urged for effective management of firewood for needy populations.
