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 climate resilience of ecosystems and vulnerable communities in the Churia region through integrated sustainable rural development and natural resource management approaches.

The project 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.

Country Programming Framework (CPF 2018-2022)

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.
