The ‘Food Security Enhancement and Agricultural Resilience of the Earthquake-Affected Rural Nepalese Farmers-Phase II” (FOSTER-II) project will run from May 2020 to June 2023 working with 85 farmer groups (1720 participants) in rural areas of Dhading. Foster II is funded by Canadian Foodgrains Band and ADRA Canada with a total budget of CA$899,796.
The project goal is to enhance resilience to food security shocks. This is achieved through teaching of innovative farming practises (Farmers Field School), construction of water systems, access to farming assets, strengthening of community savings and credit schemes and Farmers Market School. Through project activities it is expected that livelihood options are diversified, farmer incomes increased, average food provisioning increased and food security is increased.
