Sudurpashchim Province has huge potential for diverse agriculture and livestock commodities due to its geographical/ecological diversity ranging from the Terai to the mountainous regions, however it is equally vulnerable to climate change induced disasters. With the vision to combat negative impacts of climate change for increasing agricultural production leading to food security, the Ministry of Land Management, Agriculture, Co-operative (MoLMAC), Sudurpashchim Province has started Climate Smart Agriculture pilot programme in all the 9 districts in the province. For further improving the effective implementation of climate smart agricultural programs and for efficient resource allocation, MoLMAC has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Local Initiatives for Biodiversity, Research and Development (LI-BIRD), for collaboration in implementing climatesmart agriculture related programs in the province and to develop Climate Investment Plan (CIP) of Sudurpashchim province. The need for Climate Investment Plan was realized as a planning tool to configure total investment needed for adopting CSA technologies across major commodities in the province.
