WWF Community Projects In Nepal

Women cutting grass. The grasslands are managed by the Community Co-ordination Forest Committee (CFCC). The land was previously grazed on, leaving it barren and bereft of life. Through sustainable management the area has now been regenerated. The CFCC was established with the help of WWF and allows communities to manage their own forests/grasslands in a sustainable manner.

The Story:

WWF Photographer Simon de Trey-White went on a photographic mission to document WWF's work with Nepalese communities as they confront the very real impacts of climate change – which threatens people and wildlife alike.

These photos tell the stories of the local people that have to live with these threats whilst also coping with poverty and minimal resources

WWF-UK Photography Manager Greg Armfield went along and tells all in his mission blog.
