Since its formal inception in 1996, FECOFUN has grown into a social movement organization, representing approximately 3.5 million forest users in Nepal. It has been instrumental in advocating for forest user rights and lobbying government officials and politicians. Recent contentious actions include marches, demonstrations, signature campaigns, court cases, and petitions. Through these kinds of engagements FECOFUN is beginning to shape a new space within civil society where questions of property rights and control over resources can be more effectively debated and negotiated by forest users as Nepalese constituents and citizens.
