Green Resilient Agricultural Productive Ecosystems
The Green Resilient Agricultural Productive Ecosystems (GRAPE) programme aims to strengthen sustainable agricultural ecosystems in the Sudurpashchim and Karnali provinces of Nepal. In doing so, the programme supports green local economic development. Through the programme, farmers, cooperatives, and small businesses are enabled to build economically viable and climate resilient value chains at the local level. Through training they learn to use different practices like integrated crop management, crop rotation systems and how to practice organic farming, agroforestry, and water resource management. The programme also supports municipalities in integrating climate change relevant investments and projects into their planning. By implementing collaborative action research and supporting multi-actor cooperation, the project also supports Nepalese stakeholders in promoting climate-resilient agriculture and co-creating and sharing applicable knowledge beyond the project’s runtime.
