Abstract

This study investigates empirically how forest resources production and time allocation behavior links with climate change issue by using household survey in mid hill village of Nepal. We use Cobb Douglas production function theory to develop household production function econometric model. We use two character households: unemployed and forest dependent population for observation of time allocation behavior for household production. In addition, we use poverty and illiteracy of household characters for understanding its effect on household decision behavior and production behavior. In outcomes of the study, household production behavior of rural people results higher dependency on forest biomass and its consequence-climate change cause issue.
