Abstract In the context of environment degradation in poor & marginal rural areas, women s participation in community forestry programs & factors that contribute to their participation in reforestation programs are examined. Case studies from Nepal underpin a discussion of factors hindering the involvement of rural poor in these programs: fear of exploitation & resource inaccessibility. How social workers can advocate for the participation of the poor to promote sustainable development is outlined. 55 References. Adapted from the source document
