Project Introduction

IFAD has been amongst the Development Partners (DPs) engaged with the Government of Nepal (GoN) in the preparation of the 2014 Agriculture Development Strategy (ADS). The ADS sets a new and dynamic direction for driving agricultural sector growth in Nepal. IFAD and the GoN propose to apply the ADS principles to the development of the Agriculture Sector Development Programme (ASDP), building off the successful experience of the IFAD-financed High Value Agriculture Project (HVAP) and other government and donor-funded, market-oriented Programmes in Nepal. The ASDP will be implemented within the framework of Nepal’s Federal states governance system, authorised under Schedule 4 of the new constitution adopted on 20th September 2015 and currently being established. These constitutional reforms involve a high level of State subsidiarity to a new municipal/ward structure, which will be responsible for agriculture and rural development in Nepal.  
The Goal of the Programme is to: contribute to the reduction of poverty and nutrition insecurity amongst women and men in hill and mountain areas of Province 6. The Development Objective is to: sustainably improve the income and food security of smallholders and disadvantaged rural groups involved in commercially-oriented production and marketing systems in selected high value agricultural value chains.  

Targeted Beneficiaries

The programme is expected that the ASDP will serve around 35,000 direct beneficiaries (producers households and agri-industry entrepreneurs and employees) and around 40,000 indirect household beneficiaries (through public infrastructure, financial services and agricultural services development).

Goal

The Goal of the Programme is to: contribute to the reduction of poverty and nutrition insecurity amongst women and men in hill and mountain areas of Karnali Province.

Implementing Partner

The Government of Nepal (GoN), International Fund for Agriculture Development (IFAD), and HELVETAS are the major partners of the ASDP. A part from this, private sector and farmers' organizations are also the partners of the programme. The local Non-Government Organization in each district is also implementing partners of the programme.
