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.

Samarth-NMDP selected the following Implementing Partners (IPs) and districts for these projects:  

1.        FORWARD to build 600 livestock shed in MAKAWANPUR

2.       SAPPROS to build 300 livestock sheds in Lamjung and 100 livestock sheds in TANAHUN

The planning and the construction adhere to the Samarth-facilitated government approved guidelines: "Cattle Shed Construction Standards for Earthquake Affected Areas, 2015."

Community Seed Storage Facility (CSSF)

In May 2015 the Ministry of Agricultural Development (MoAD) approached the UK Department for International Development (DFID) to request support in constructing community seed storage facilities to help farmers in three districts (Makwanpur, Lamjung and Tanahun) 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 15 community seed storage facilities (CSSFs) across the three districts.

After a rapid but effective tendering process, Samarth-NMDP selected the following Implementing Partners (IPs) and districts:

1.       FORWARD to build 5 CSSFs in MAKWANPUR

2.        DEVTEC NEPAL to build 10 CSSFs ( 5 in each district) in TANAHU & LAMJUNG

Both the planning and construction adhere to the Samarth-facilitated government approved guidelines: "Seed and Grain Storage Facility Construction Standards for Earthquake Affected Areas, 2015."
