Media

Over 80% of people in Nepal listen to radio, out of which almost 40% - who fall in the poorest category - listen to it on daily basis. Therefore, improving the functioning of the media market in Nepal, particularly the radio targeted to rural populations, has the potential to contribute to pro-poor changes in agricultural practice and productivity.

Vegetables

The Vegetable sector has an immense poverty reduction potential in Nepal because of high, unmet domestic demand and the potential for net import substitution from neighboring countries - especially India.  The sector also has high potential to benefit disadvantaged communities.
The sector, however, is constrained by low adoption rate of high quality seeds; lack of access to and informed choice of the use of other inputs such as agrochemicals; highly informal and fragmented trade in inputs and produce; and limited aggregation of vegetables at local level.

Pigs

The Pig sector is large and associated overwhelmingly with poor and disadvantaged groups. More than 90% of the 540,000 households involved in rearing pigs have either one or two pigs as ‘fatteners’, in simple, low-cost, low-input, small-scale systems. Pigs are reared mostly in rural areas, with women being central to pig-raising activities.

Rearing pigs help rural households have a safety net in terms of savings, nutritious food security and provide a source of cash for household expenditure.
