We support education around improved farming methods in Nepal so that communities can cope with the effects of climate change.
This project trains local IPM technicians who, through practical farmer field schools (FFS), then introduce IPM techniques to small farmers. Last year 23 FFS graduates were trained to on-train their fellow farmers in IPM rice and vegetables in their localities. In 2010 enough extra rice was produced to feed their families for 72 more days per year. We have been working with Caritas Nepal since 2008.
