dc.description.abstract The research will test a range of agricultural innovations for inclusion in a sustainable agriculture kit (SAK) containing drought-resistant and soil-nourishing legume seeds that enhance yields and nutrition and grow well on terrace edges and walls. To scale up the results, the project will also test a public-private partnership model for reaching 25,000 households. Nearly 70% of Nepal’s cultivated crop land is on narrow rain-fed terraces which require planting and weeding by hand: isolated work that is usually done by women. The research contributes to better working conditions for women, and helps farmers cope with climate change. en
