CDC and USAID collaborated with MercyCorps for the following endeavors.

“Promoting Agriculture, Health & Alternative Livelihood (PAHAL) is a five-year (2014-2019), project that seeks to strengthen livelihoods, improve nutritional status, and increase the capacity of vulnerable households to mitigate, adapt to, and recover from shocks and stresses in rural communities. Implemented by Mercy Corps, the project and its partners target individuals, households, and communities to help build the resilience of up to 160,000 households across 14 food-insecure districts in Nepal. The program is focused in the far-western and mid-western districts – Achham, Baitadi, Bajhang, Bajura, Dadeldhura, Darchula, Dailekh, Doti, Jajarkot, Pyuthan, Rolpa, Rukum, Salyan, and Surkhet.”
