The Government of Nepal together with the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) developed the ´Building a Resilient Churia Region in Nepal´ (BRCRN) Project. The overarching objective of the proposed Green Climate Fund (GCF) project is to "enhance the cli-mate resilience of ecosystems and vulnerable communities in the Churia region through inte-grated sustainable rural development and natural resource management approaches."The pro-ject will directly benefit at least 750 community-based organizations, containing over 173,160 households and 831,168 people (50% women), in 26 vulnerable river systems to strengthen their resilience against climate change. Indirectly the project will benefit over 3.2 million people living in the BRCRN project area. The project is aligned with the country´s National Development Plans, climate change policy and key sectoral strategies, as well as Nepal´s international commitments, including its Nationally Determined Contribution (NDC) to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). The project has been designed through extensive stakeholder consultations at the national, regional and local level, including consultations with local community-based or-ganizations, indigenous federations, women’s groups and Dalit organizations, among other stakeholders. The National Designated Authority (NDA) has issued a letter of no-objection for the project, and has been closely involved throughout the elaboration of the concept note, funding proposal and supporting documents.

Country Programming Framework (CPF)  for Nepal

This Country Programming Framework (CPF) sets out three priority areas of the Government of Nepal (GoN) to guide FAO’s partnership and support, bringing together innovative international best practices and global standards with national and regional expertise. It aims at supporting the government efforts towards addressing sustainable and competitive agricultural production for poverty reduction and eradication of hunger and malnutrition; resilient natural resource management and agricultural production system; and inclusive and gender responsive livelihoods enhancement.
The CPF outlines the key priority areas of FAO technical assistance support to and partnership with the Government of Nepal in period of five years from 2018 to 2022. The formulation process of this CPF (2018-2022) involved a wide range of consultations among national stakeholders including line ministries of the Government of Nepal, civil society, private sector, development partners and relevant United Nations agencies.
