PROLINNOVA Nepal Programme (Jan 2007-Dec., 2011)

PROLINNOVA is an international NGO-led initiative to build a global learning and advocacy network on promoting local innovation in ecologically oriented agriculture and natural resource management. The focus is on recognizing the dynamics of indigenous knowledge and learning how to strengthen the capacities of farmers to adjust to changing conditions- to develop and adopt their own site appropriate systems and institutions of resource management in order to gain food security, sustain their livelihoods and safeguard the environment.

The overall objective of the PROLINNOVA programme is to develop and institutionalise partnership and methodologies that promote processes of local innovation in environmentally sound use of natural resources, particularly in dry and marginal areas, e.g. in pastorilism, biodiversity management, rainfed agriculture and forest management.
