Forest degradation is a process in which the biological wealth of a forest area is permanently diminished by some factor or by a combination of factors.

"This does not involve a reduction of the forest area, but rather a quality decrease in its condition."The forest is still there, but with fewer trees, or less species of trees, plants or animals, or some of them affected by plagues. Forest fire is one of the key drivers of forest degradation in Forest degredation in Nepal book.

Most of the forest fires are human-induced and occur during the dry season, with ∼89% occurring in March, April and May. Forest is one of the most important natural resources of Nepal.

Some 35 major forest types occur in Nepal that change abruptly, owing to a wide variation of topography, climate, and edaphic. The study aims to provide a better understanding of the ways in which forest resources are used in Nepal.

Its focus is to examine systematically the costs and benefits of present and possible future sustainable and biodiversity-friendly management practices from household, national, and global : World Bank.
