Aliansi untuk Pembangunan Terpadu

Developed as a response to the overexploitation of natural resources, wildlife poaching, and water pollution, the Alliance for Integrated Development Nepal (AID-Nepal) protects and manages the resources of Jagadishpur, an ‘important bird area’, a Ramsar site, and the largest manmade reservoir in Nepal. AID-Nepal works to create sustainable livelihoods while also maintaining and enhancing biodiversity in this wetland ecosystem. Organic farming, riverbank restoration, reforestation, ecotourism, and anti-poaching activities are improving incomes in ways that also protect several bird species that are on the verge of extinction, including vultures and cranes.

Radio programming and grassroots awareness-raising campaigns have sensitized the public to the links between wetland health and human well-being. Led primarily by women, the initiative has managed to control illegal hunting, promote organic farming, create a revolving micro-credit fund, build an equitable irrigation system, and substantially improve and diversify local livelihoods.
