Case Studies

Many people in Nepal, especially those living in the Middle Hill and Mountain regions, continue to struggle with food insecurity and poor nutrition despite the progress Nepal has achieved in lowering its overall poverty rate. In the remote and rugged terrains of Nepal, persistent food insecurity is a result of complex, interlinked risks and vulnerabilities. The Promoting Agriculture, Health, and Alternative Livelihood (PAHAL) project work in these areas to improve food security by strengthening livelihoods and increasing the capacity of vulnerable households to prevent, mitigate, adapt to, and recover from shocks and stresses in communities with deep poverty and high rates of malnutrition.
