The “Local Initiatives to Reduce Impacts of Climate Change” (LIRIC) project will run from January 2020 to June 2023 and is funded by the European Union and the Austrian Development Cooperation with a total budget of Euro 1,021,658.
This project is set in the Mahottaru and Dhanusha districts of Provence 2 in the Terai which are categorised as highly vulnerable to the effects of climate change. The goal of this project is to enhance the resilience of poor and vulnerable populations to the impacts of climate change leading to secure livelihoods and reduced poverty.
LIRIC will promote community awareness and advocacy, support communities to work with local governments to both hold them accountable for climate actions and develop climate resilient plans and policies. It will also support the development and implementation of climate change adaptation and mitigation practises.
