Project Name: Gorkha Food Security and Livelihoods Enhancement Program(Nepal)
Project Description: Disastrous earthquakes struck Nepal in April and May, 2015, which have had a massive impact on the livelihoods and food security of affected communities where agriculture and livestock are the main source of livelihoods. To respond the post-disaster recovery, the TaiwanICDF worked with CARE Nepal on Gorkha Food Security and Livelihoods Support Program from December 2015 to November 2016. To continue assisting the earthquake-affected households in Gorkha, this project was launched to further enhance their food Security and livelihoods.
Overall, this project will:
1. Increase food security from sustainable agro-based livelihoods through capacity building of poor, vulnerable and socially excluded (PVSE) farmers and relevant local institutions;
2. Enhance commercialization in agriculture in the earthquake affected communities, particularly PVSE, through capacity development, increased engagement in value chain, and better access to markets;
