Promoting Agriculture, Health, and Alternative Livelihoods (PAHAL)
PDF File Size: 145 KB | Download   
Nepal has made substantial strides toward reducing its overall poverty rate. However, many people, especially those living in the Middle Hill and Mountain regions,continue to struggle with food insecurity and poor nutrition. In the remote and rugged terrains of Nepal, persistent food insecurity is a result of a complex, interlinked risks and vulnerabilities. Poverty remains entrenched in these remote areas where agricultural production is stagnating and few alternative livelihood opportunities exist. Poor nutritional and sanitation practices undermine health status and productivity, while limited public investment in infrastructure, health services, and disaster management constrain sustainable development.
