About Women’s Economic Empowerment & Climate Justice

We are committed to ending hunger and malnutrition – but in the face of environmental degradation, climate change, power imbalances and the current COVID-19 pandemic, it is becoming a greater challenge than ever.

To combat this, CARE Nepal under this theme has been working with our target communities to achieve improved and diversified food and nutritional security; equitable natural resources management; dignified livelihoods and economic opportunities; and resilience against the impacts of climate change.

This year we succeeded in a) cultivating innovative and scalable models, b) collaboration with government at all levels, and c) capacitation and mobilization of people’s organization and networks. Some of the models with wider scalability for sustainable development include Climate Change Adaptation and Disaster Risk Reduction; Integrated Sub-watershed Management Plans; Local Adaptation Plans of Action that incorporates Differential Impact Assessment and Response Plan; Climate Resilient Leasehold Farming Practices; Localized Agricultural Insurance Scheme; Agro-met Advisory Services; and Nutritional Behavior Change.
