Social Safety Net Project to Improve Food Security Livelihood and Nutrition
The Social Safety Net Project to Improve Food Security Livelihood and Nutrition enables households in seven food-deficit VDCs of Darchula District of Nepal to increase food security, improve livelihoods and nutrition through better management of watersheds and irrigation systems. The project builds on past World Food Program investments to increase food production with farmers in Darchula District. In the current project, farmers create community assets such as water systems, rural access roads and develop skills using Farmer Field Schools (FFS) and 'food for work' and 'cash for work' approaches while addressing the conservation of watersheds adversely impacted by climate change.
