Federation of Community Forestry User Groups, Nepal (FECOFUN).
The Federation of community Forestry Users, Nepal (FECOFUN) is a formal network of Forest User Groups (FUGs) from all over Nepal.

Since its inception in July 1995, FECOFUN has grown into a social movement organization with about 8.5 million people represented all of whom are forest users. It is a national federation of forest users across Nepal dedicated to promoting and protecting users’ rights.
