Project Name: Gorkha Food Security and Livelihoods Support Program (Nepal)
Project Description: On April 25, 2015, Nepal was hit by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake, which caused immense destruction of property, injury, and loss of life. Many aftershocks have followed, including a second 7.3 magnitude earthquake on May 12, 2015 which caused further destruction in already devastated areas.

To improve the current conditions, the TaiwanICDF is cooperating with Care Nepal to address the food security and livelihood needs of the most vulnerable earthquake-affected households in Gorkha district. This will be achieved through the implementation of mutually reinforcing interventions that support at least 850 disaster affected households(HHs) to recover their livelihoods and establish coping mechanisms to meet their food security by the end of the project.

Overall, this project will:
1. At least 850 most vulnerable earthquake affected HHs in Gorkha recover their agricultural livelihoods by the end of the project.
2. Linkage to markets is enhanced in targeted areas in Gorkha district by the end of the project.
3. Enhanced community capacity in resilient and improved production methods in targeted areas in Gorkha by the end of the project.
