Farming in the Himalayas is tough. Climate change makes it even harder.
Many people in Nepal, like Pooja, rely on farming for food and income. But cycles of floods and droughts are destroying their crops.
What would it take for Pooja to succeed?
An ingenious combination of small things that would make a big difference. A proven approach perfected in partnership with other farming communities in Nepal.
Better seeds would make her crops more resilient to new weather patterns. Solar-power could water her fields during dry periods. Training in new farming techniques would mean bigger harvests – enough to feed her family, with extra to sell. Vegetable cable cars could move her produce to market in minutes, not hours. New business skills would bring opportunities to earn more. And with a bigger say in community decision making, women like Pooja could shine.
You can help farmers like Pooja turn the tables on climate change. Donate today and every pound you give will be doubled by the UK government.
