When we discuss endogenous development of developing countries, environmental education based on livelihood aspects and gender perspectives are decisive factors. In rural villages of developing countries such as Nepal, people are heavily dependent on the forest for daily life. The forest is the most important source of resources vital to the household economy. Women are responsible for forest conservation. In their hands lie many decisions about the use of natural resources. Despite that, the roles of women are not recognized properly because of the lower social status and domination of women. However, the current environmental education model in developing countries mainly focuses on the natural environment and lacks a particular focus on livelihood aspects and gender perspectives. There is a limitation to solve the environmental problems and social problems that affect development of the country.
Therefore, this research incorporates environmental education focus on gender perspectives in Nepal, which helps to assume the important factor of endogenous development.
