HARIYO BAN PROGRAM
The goal of Hariyo Ban II is increased ecological and community resilience in the Chitwan-Annapurna Landscape and the Terai Arc Landscape, and this is to be achieved through two objectives:
- Improving the conservation and management of the CHAL and TAL landscapes; and
- Reducing climate change vulnerability in CHAL and TAL.
Hariyo Ban II continues to work closely with several governmental and non-governmental stakeholders at the national, district and sub-district level. The MoFSC will, as in the first phase, be the focal ministry for Hariyo Ban II. Within MoFSC the Program is collaborating with the departments, regional directorates and district offices in planning and implementation of the Hariyo Ban II first year work plan. In addition, Hariyo Ban has been coordinating with the Ministry of Population and Environment (MoPE), Ministry of Federal Affairs and General Administration (MoFAGA), and local governments and District Coordination Committees (DCCs) in the program areas. The Program also works with academic institutions, civil society networks and the private sector.
