The USAID-funded Nepal Economic, Agriculture, and Trade Activity (NEAT) has partnered with the Ministry of Agriculture Development (MoAD) to design and disseminate agricultural training materials nationwide.


Developed in consultation with Nepal’s Department of Agriculture, the training materials were officially handed over to the MoAD at an event in Kathmandu on Wednesday. Secretary of MOAD, Jaya Mukunda Khanal, and MOAD Joint Secretary, Ram Prasad Pulami, received the materials.


The materials—263,000 pieces covering 13 crops and 3 types of livestock—include durable handouts and flipcharts aimed at increasing the quantity and quality of agricultural production, said USAID in a statement adding the materials are oriented to illiterate and semi-literate populations, using a combination of photos and written descriptions in Nepali to clearly depict and explain critical agriculture practices.


The materials will be distributed to Department of Agriculture Training Centres, District Agriculture Development Officers (DADOs), and extension service centers throughout Nepal, said USAID.


NEAT is a 32-month programme designed to promote economic growth, reduce poverty, increase food security, and improve lives.
