Lutheran World Relief’s approach to climate-smart agriculture helps smallholder farmers adapt to and mitigate the effects of changing climates, while improving their own household food security and protecting the environment.
In Nepal, where monsoons, flooding, landslides and a rapidly changing ecosystem can devastate food production and farmers’ livelihoods, the impacts of climate change are already placing millions at risk.
By fostering climate-resilient agriculture landscapes to ensure the sustainable productivity and wellbeing of farmers and their communities, Lutheran World Relief is committed to long-term investment in rural livelihoods in Nepal.
Since 2009, Lutheran World Relief has worked in Nepal, reaching Indigenous, Dalit and other marginalized communities with programs in agriculture and food security, climate change adaptation, disaster risk reduction and humanitarian assistance. Our holistic approach prioritizes women and youth and helps communities to build the resilience they need to thrive. By partnering with local non-governmental organizations, farmers’ organizations and private sector actors, we strengthen agricultural enterprises while enhancing sustainable water management and climate adaptive systems.
