Nepal's forests 'being stripped by Indian timber demand'

Date : 29th September 2010, Source : BBC Link to News Story



As India takes steps to protect its forests in the fight against climate change, timber smuggling from Nepal is on the rise, Nepalese conservationists and officials say. They say this increase in smuggling is the result of growing demand for timber from the Indian market. Their counterparts in Indian states that share an open border with Nepal agree the smuggling is taking place.
