The Churia region of Nepal has a vital role in maintaining the ecosystem of the heavily populated Terai plains. For decades, the region’s natural resources have been managed unsustainably, leading to land degradation and, now, exacerbated by the effects of climate change.
This project takes an integrated approach in restoring ecosystems, including forests, while taking into account land use needs. It includes an element of strong stakeholder engagement, including with all levels of government and community-based organisations.
