The U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) has launched two new conflict management and mitigation projects: Community Initiatives for Common Understanding, and Inclusive Resource Management Initiative. The projects will focus on the Mid- and Far-Western regions of Nepal and address the root causes of conflict by bringing together representatives of conflicting groups to seek solutions in a safe space.
USAID/Nepal’s Health for Life project will strengthen the Government of Nepal’s capacity to plan, manage and deliver high-quality family planning and maternal, newborn and child health services at the district and local levels.
Staff Reporters and Freelancers reporting on environment issues online, in print, or on the radio, are invited to apply for an environment reportage workshop based on 2-days of discussions in Kathmandu followed by 4-days of field research either in the Terai Arc Landscape (TAL) or the Chitwan-Annapurna Landscape (CHAL) areas.
Today, the Ministry of Health and Population (MOHP) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) launched “Health for Life,” an $18 million, five-year health systems and maternal, newborn, child health and family planning program. Health for Life builds on accomplishments gained from the MOHP Nepal Health Sector Programme II and USAID/Nepal’s health sector investments to date. The program aims to strengthen the Government of Nepal’s capacity to plan, manage and deliver high quality and equitable family planning, maternal, newborn and child health services.
Today, U.S. Ambassador Peter W. Bodde signed a memorandum with the Ministry of Peace and Reconstruction (MoPR) acknowledging a U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) contribution to the Nepal Peace Trust Fund (NPTF).
