Adaptation for Smallholders in Hilly Areas Project
ASHA will build on previous successful IFAD projects promoting community development, agricultural production and environmental protection in Nepal. Over the next six years it will strengthen the adaptive capacity of communities and institutions to contend with climate change risks.
The project will be implemented in ten vulnerable districts. Phase I (years 1-3) will focus on six districts in Mid-Western Region: Jajarkot, Kalikot, Dailekh, Salyan, Rolpa and Rukum. Phase II (years 4-6) will either intensify project activities in these districts or scale up to other central and eastern regions. The project will target poor women and men, landless households, and ethnic minority and other socio-economically marginalized groups.
