In line with the Agricultural Development Strategy (ADS) 2015-2035, Agriculture Sector Development Programme (ASDP) is a follow on programme of High Value Agriculture Project for Hill and Mountain Areas (HVAP) building off its successful experiences and learning. Starting from 2018/19 fiscal year (July 2018), it is funded by the Government of Nepal and International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD) as per the financing agreement signed on 4 June, 2018 and being implemented in 10 districts (Jumla, Kalikot, Humla, Mugu, Dolpa, Surkhet, Dailekh, Jajarkot, Salyan and West Rukum) of Karnali province. The Swiss Agency for International Development (SDC) is providing technical assistance (TA) for the institutionalization of pluralistic extension services bridging up with the currently running Nepal Agricultural Service Development Program (NASDP). The thematic areas of agriculture development intervention in this programme are guided by ADS and IFAD’s Country Strategic Opportunity Programme (COSOP). The overall goal of this programme is to contribute to achieve Nepal’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 1 and SDG 2) for no poverty and zero hunger, respectively. The main aim of ASDP is to contribute in reducing poverty and nutrition insecurity amongst women and men in hill and mountain areas of the province with an objective to contribute to sustainable improvement in income generation and food security of smallholders and disadvantaged rural groups involved in commercially-oriented production and marketing systems in selected high value agricultural value chains.
