Tsechu Dolma-Building Climate Change Resilience in Nepal Himalayas

Grantee Name: Tsechu Dolma
Project Name: Mountain Resiliency Project
Grant Location: Global

Funding Partner: Levi Strauss & Co.

Project Description: We are developing greenhouses in the Dhorpattan Tibetan Refugee Camp. We provide agriculture technique farming to farmers so that they can increase their productivity and income. We realize that climate change resiliency and economics is heavily tied together. By expanding financial inclusion and increasing economic activity in mountain communities, we are seeing that climate change adaptive capacity is also enhanced. We are also promoting traditional ways of growing indigenous crops. We are directly engaging the community, especially the youth, to gain from this combination.
