Integrated Rural Development Project (Sagarmatha Zone)

Integrated Rural Development Project (Sagarmatha Zone)

The project area included both the Terai lowlands, with its gentle slopes, and the steeper hill areas. Agricultural yields are low in these zones and poor rural people struggle to feed themselves adequately. The project addressed the root causes of poor agricultural productivity in the area and worked to improve incomes and living standards for the poor. The objectives of project activities included:

  • strengthening agricultural support services
  • improving irrigation and transport facilities
  • ensuring soil and water conservation
  • creating alternative income opportunities
  • improving health facilities
  • establishing a clean drinking water supply
