Changing Climate, Changing Life: a story of Laxmi Sunar

2017

Nepal has been hard hit by climate change and rural farmers are particularly affected. Many of them cope by reducing their food intake, borrowing money at high interest rates, and migrating. This video tells the story of Laxmi, whose husband migrated abroad four years ago in search of work. Since then, Laxmi has been responsible for their farm, livestock and young daughter.

Through an FAO-supported project, Laxmi and others are learning about improved farming practices and techniques. The programme is designed to help farmers adapt to the impact of climate change and adopt more sustainable methods, thereby better enabling them to live off their lands.
