Agriculture Reconstruction Project (ARP)

Livestock Sheds

In May 2015 the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MoAD) approached the UK Department for International Development (DFID) to request support in constructing livestock sheds to help affected households in three districts (Makwanpur, Lamjung and Tanahu) to recover from the effects of the recent earthquakes. DFID in turn asked Samarth-NMDP to assist with contracting, funding and monitoring an intervention to construct 1000 livestock sheds (LSs) across the three districts.


Ginger is indigenous to the Indo-China region, with Nepal being one of the most suitable countries for its production. An estimated 200,000 farmers produce 250,000 t/y of which the poor produce 30%. Ginger is mainly cultivated in the mid-hills, where many of the socially excluded groups reside, including Janajatis and Dalits.
