Today, the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) commemorated its almost three-year partnership with the Government of Nepal and the private sector to foster economic growth and improve food security.
The Government of Nepal's (GoN) Ministry of Agricultural Development (MOAD), the Ministry of Health and Population (MOHP), the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the World Bank launched two new food security initiatives in Nepal: the Knowledge-based Integrated Sustainable Agriculture and Nutrition Project (KISAN and the Agriculture and Food Security Project (AFSP). The projects will work in the west, mid-west, and far-west regions of the country.
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.
