Western Uplands Poverty Alleviation Project

Western Uplands Poverty Alleviation Project

This project's objective is to improve and strengthen the livelihoods of the most vulnerable households in Nepal's Western Uplands region, where poverty is widespread. The region's terrain and climate are harsh, its location is isolated and its infrastructure is poor. Many of its people struggle to grow enough crops to feed themselves and their families on tiny plots of land.
Project activities include:

  • Improving access to services and resources
  • Promoting different livelihood options, such as livestock, forestry and crops
  • Empowering women and other marginalized people.

The project promotes more resilient livelihoods and basic human dignity for poor and socially disadvantaged groups through a rights-based approach. A related objective is to create vibrant grassroots institutions that will respond to the needs of rural people, empowering them to mobilize their own resources and gain access to external resources. Some 95 per cent of the target group is composed of food-insecure households located in inaccessible areas.
