RDF’s Social Program Coordinator took part in Learning Route in Nepal

RDF’s Social Program Coordinator Kuluipa Akmatova took part in Learning Route on women’s empowerment, business development and sustainable natural resource management. It was held in districts not far from 3 cities: Kathmandu, Chitwan, Lumbiniin Nepal from from the 06th to the 13th December 2014. Representatives from Latin America, Africa and Asia took part in this event.

 



The IFAD, the Ministry of Forest and Soil Conservation of Nepal, the Poverty Alleviation Fund (PAF), the Nepal Agriculture Co-Operative Central Federation Ltd. (NACCFL) and PROCASURare honoured to launch the Learning Route: “Women’s Empowerment, New Businesses and Sustainable Natural Resource Management in Nepal” from the 06th to the 13th December 2014.

 

The program of Route was intense, included seminars, visits to farmers cooperatives and natural resource community. The Learning Route’s main objective is to disseminate best practices and successful strategies for rural livelihoods improvement through gender sensitive natural resource and cooperatives management.

 

Cover the following 4 thematic areas:

1.    Women’s empowerment and gender mainstreaming: women’s involvement in social, economic and financial activities led them firstly to play a leading role at community level and later to cooperatives and other organizations. This exposure is building women’s skills and self-confidence when performing in the public sphere, and is as well improving the gender relations in the households.

2.    Diversification of rural livelihoods: Through the promotion of a culture of saving and fair rate loans the cooperatives are encouraging the development of new small rural businesses, both at individual and group level. The scoping activities for new markets are offering new, sustainable and more profitable opportunities to the younger generations to stay in rural.

3.    Innovative solutions in community forestry management: The extended Natural Resource Management best practices promoted by LFLP and PAF were fundamental in recovering the biodiversity of the territories, and therefore, responding better to climate change challenges.

4.    Development of member-based microfinance organizations. The consolidation in a country wide network of originally small farmers cooperatives has been the result of the progressive empowerment at village and district level and the smart linkages with financial and non-financial institutions.
