This is the on-line system for the preparation of subprojects under the BCRWME Project. The project is one of five components in Nepal's Strategic Program for Climate Resilience (SPCR), which was endorsed in June 2011.
The Government's SPCR aims to build long-term climate resilience through an integrated water resource and ecosystem-based approach, and to provide lessons on how best to build resilience in vulnerable mountain regions. It responds to the GON's National Adaptation Programme of Action (NAPA) for climate change, which was finalized in September 2010.
The project aims to provide access to more reliable water resources for domestic purposes, livestock and irrigation for communities living in about 100 VDCs located in the West Seti and Budhi Ganga watersheds which are significantly vulnerable to climate change. These 2 watersheds fall within 6 districts in Far Western Development Region: Achham, Baitaidi, Bajhang, Bajura, Dadeldhura and Doti. Access and reliability to water resources will be improved through a participatory program of integrated watershed management with interventions in upland areas to increase surface water storage and groundwater recharge.
The project will demonstrate ways to protect water sources while at the same time developing them for efficient use. The communities in the project area will have more reliable water supplies in the dry season. Major beneficiaries will be women and disadvantaged groups To achieve its expected outcome, the project will have four outputs:
