Sustainable Livelihood Project

Bajura is one of the remote mountainous districts in the western part of the country. The district is ecologically sensitive to climate change; the mountainous landscape is highly vulnerable to landslides, floods and drought.

There has been observed an increasing event of drought and drying water sources in the recent years in Bajura with warmer summer and cold winter conditions. Sloppy terrains, weak soil structure, cluttered farming practices, extended dry days have amplified the risk of landslides, floods and drought.

Many house­holds in the dis­trict are engaged on sub­sis­tence farming. In the absence of other income gen­er­a­tion and employ­ment oppor­tu­ni­ties men are forced to migrate to India and other gulf coun­tries for work, and women are left to raise their fam­i­lies alone. Food Scarcity is a promi­nent problem in Bajura.

  • The Sus­tain­able Liveli­hoods project in Bajura seeks to improve adap­tive capac­ity of the rural poor in this area to engage in agri­cul­ture-based liveli­hoods to cope with climate vari­abil­ity and change. This includes:
  • Increased skills and prac­tice of people includ­ing mar­gin­al­ized groups in rural com­mu­ni­ties to engage in diver­si­fied and sus­tain­able agri­cul­tural based eco­nomic activities
  • Increased ability of local gov­ern­ment and com­mu­ni­ties to min­i­mize the adverse impact of dis­as­ters and climate change on their well-being and livelihood.
  • Increased voca­tional skills of rural indi­vid­u­als, women and youth includ­ing mar­gin­al­ized groups in line with labour market demand
