Result-sharing Workshop in Nepal
- On August 10, 2017, Nepal held the Result-sharing Workshop in Kathmandu to share the results of KAPEX Trainings and the project experience to increase productivity in Nepal. The Ministry of Agricultural Development presented the results of joint research. The other related institutions, such as the UNDP and KOICA, shared their projects implemented in Nepal, and discussed how to improve food security in Nepal.
- According to the research, Nepal is facing some challenges, including land tenure ownership, land fragmentation, land use patterns and quality degradation, and land conservation. Youth migration from rural, low R&D investment, and loose links in extension, research, education and farmers are another bottleneck for Nepal’s food security. Based on the research findings, the following are the recommendations for productivity increase: support for irrigation, policy support for land size increase, the supply of quality seeds, access to finance, support to farmers, and market management through capacity building. As the study aims to improve zero-hunger action plans, Nepal should prioritize the zero-hunger activities, such as extension services to farmers for capacity building and the supply of quality seeds.
