The main objective of this study was to identify the cooperatives’ strength and weakness, and assess the capacity building needs so that they can better contribute to fulfilling LCPV project’s conservation and development goals. The study has shown that the assessed cooperatives’ position on governance is weak. The capacity of Board of Directors and Managers on operational and organization management needs to be enhanced for the better management of the cooperatives. Most of the cooperatives are not aware of the recent changes in the policies of the Government of Nepal (GoN) thus they are not adhering to compliance issues.
