In my internship placement I was involved in an Agro-Biodiversity Conservation (ABC) project implemented by a local NGO, Resource Identification & Management Society (RIMS) Nepal, targeting the indigenous Chepang communities in Dhading district, central Nepal.
The project attempts to conserve the agro-biodiversity through livelihood improvement mechanisms in the project area, raising awareness of the importance of ABC and providing training for different income generation skills at the same time.
