Nepal (South Asia)

 In Nepal, IFSD has undertaken a comprehensive approach to address the significant impacts of climate change in the region. The country’s diverse geography and heavy dependence on agriculture and natural resources make it particularly vulnerable to the effects of climate change, including extreme weather events, water scarcity, and loss of biodiversity. We have contributed to research and policy analysis on water security in the Himalayas. We have also engaged with different stakeholders to explore the potential for enhancing community forestry. We have also engaged in research and policy analysis through a GESI lens, aiming to create transformative change. 

Ongoing work in Nepal involves our cooperation with a NGO, Prakriti Resources Centre (PRC) as a country partner for the STRENGTH project, where we are engaged in providing technical assistance and capacity building. Additionally, we are also involved in fostering knowledge-sharing through the RESTORE Knowledge Hub for forest tenure and ecosystem restoration.
