|Title:||Nepal - Adaptation for Smallholders in Hilly Areas Project (ASHA) – Recipes for Change (R4C) – September 2022|
Through the permaculture farmer field schools, Megh Nath Ale and Tham Kumari Ale have trained 40 local farmers teaching them nature-based low-cost practices that improve soil quality with organic fertilizers and composting, protect crops from drought with mulching and water harvesting can help prevent soil erosion through the planting of hedgerows and forestry.
British meteorologist and broadcaster, Clare Nasir, travelled to Nepal as part of the Recipes for Change series to see how farmers are using permaculture to adapt to the changing climate. “As a meteorologist and someone who works in climate change, seeing it first-hand brings it to another level, a very real level. These people here are living on the front line of climate change and it's nothing to do with them. Nepal as a nation doesn't emit the greenhouse gases most of countries do around the world, but yet climate change does not respect borders and they're seeing the effects here.”
