Rupantaran developed HCCP in 2010 with the aim of supporting rural
communities in Nepal to engage with and benefit from international voluntary
markets for ecosystem services. HCCP was set-up in line with the Nepal’s Ministry of Forests and Soil
Conservation’s Readiness Preparation Proposal (RPP) which encourages pilot
projects for developing capacities and experience that could be scaled-up in
future for Nepal’s REDD+ strategy.

The project was developed through a transparent and participatory process
involving stakeholders at all levels from central government (REDD+ Cell) to
communities and households in the pilot areas. The aim of HCCP is to enhance livelihoods and reduce the vulnerability of rural communities through sustainable forest management and equitable
distribution of benefits.
