The climate smart villages approach
Laxmi Dutta Bhatta, Ecosystem Management Specialist at ICIMOD, explains the different climate-smart approaches being implemented in model villages in Kavre Palanchowk district. These approaches include minor changes to their daily work in crop production, water conservation, and communication piloted in several villages in Nepal through the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP).
In ICIMOD and CEAPRED’s CSV approach, farmers are piloting interventions that are nutrient smart, water smart, crop smart, ICT smart, energy smart and future smart. CSV is being implemented in eight villages of Kavre district under the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme. The programme is working with 981 farmers, 813 of whom are women farmers.
This video was developed as part of the Himalayan Climate Change Adaptation Programme (HICAP). HICAP is implemented jointly by ICIMOD, CICERO and GRID-Arendal in collaboration with local partners, and is funded by the governments of Norway and Sweden.
