Abstract

The fast depletion of fossil fuels and large scale ┬Ědeforestation are posing serious challenges particularly to the developing countries where people mostly depend on biomass for their energy needs. The management of fuelwood resources in the past had not received adequate attention even though 80% of the population depends on fuelwood as their primary source of energy.
