The project seeks to enhance the capacity, create enabling environment and promote participation of Civil Society Organisations(CSOs) for climate resilient agriculture (CRA) technologies and practices in selected Palikas of Kanchanpur and Dailekh Districts of Nepal.
There are three major result areas targeted by the project: enhanced capacity of CSOs, promotion of CRA technologies and supporting the establishment of enabling environment for the promotion of CRA. Approximately 8,000 farming communities and 80 CSOs are targeted by this project.
