Our support to Nepal focuses in areas where our experience and expertise can make a difference to the lives of the poorest, particularly women and girls, marginalised communities and people with disabilities. The bilateral program is complemented by investments in trade, water, energy and connectivity for the broader region.

The ACIAR country strategy continues Nepal's engagement in a regional program to improve integration of soil, water, crop, livestock and tree components of the farming systems.

Country priorities 

  • Increasing farm and forest productivity for better food and nutrition security and livelihoods.
  • Increasing research to support increased timber production from community forests.
  • Improving understanding of the implications of new federalism on agriculture in Nepal.
