Local Initiatives for Biodiversity, Research and Development (LI-BIRD) is a non-profit, non-governmental organization established in October 1995 with its Head Office in Pokhara and Programme Coordination Office in Lalitpur. LI-BIRD is committed to capitalizing on local resources, innovations and institutions for the sustainable management of natural resources and building resilience to climate change for improving the livelihoods of target beneficiaries that includes smallholder farmers particularly women in Nepal.
LI-BIRD is implementing European Union (EU) funded and DCA Nepal managed ‘Enhanced Action of Inclusive CSOs for Participation in Climate Resilient Economic Growth (UTHAN)’ project in Kanchanpur and Dailekh districts of Nepal. The project aims to work in enhancing the capacity of local governments and CSOs, creating an enabling environment, and promoting Climate Resilient Agriculture (CRA) technologies and practices in the selected Palikas of Kanchanpur and Dailekh districts. As a part of creating enabling environment and supporting local governments, LI-BIRD has a plan to develop Local Disaster and Climate Resilient Plan (LDCRP) and Risk Sensitive Plan (RSP) of four palikas (Dullu and Aathabis Municipalities in Dailekh and Laljhadi Rural Municipality and Belauri Municipality in Kanchanpur district). Vulnerability and Capacity Assessment (VCA) of all four municipalities required for LDCRP development has already been completed by the project team.
