Ms. Stuty Maskey is from Kathmandu, Nepal. There she worked for a national forestry program, working closely with forestry stakeholders – government agencies, community groups, civil society and private sector. She believes that forestry in Nepal can be used as a vehicle to create jobs and contribute to a new forest-based green economy through enterprise development and commercial management. Her academic background is in Economics and Public Policy, and although not a trained ‘forester’, she understands that forest resources in Nepal are widely untapped. At WFI, she aims to learn about Policies, Practices and Processes for forest management in the Pacific Northwest, with specific focus in the Collaborative Forest Landscape Restoration Program.
