Stories of Success from Farmer Field School in Jumla

The success stories are published as an output of the “Embedding Sustainable Pollination Management into Nepalese Agricultural Systems” project, funded by the UK Darwin Initiative and led by the University of Bristol, UK. The project is implemented by HERD International and LIBIRD, with technical support from the Karnali Ministry of Land Management Agriculture and Cooperatives (MoLMAC), Agriculture and Forestry University, and Tribhuvan University.

As part of the Darwin Pollination Project, we established three demonstration farms in different locations within the Jumla District to trial an evidence-based Pollinator Stewardship Scheme. This scheme aims to enhance pollination services and provide a venue for conducting Farmer Field School (FFS) sessions. These sessions empower farmers with a holistic understanding of farming, covering various aspects such as pollination management, crop management, pest control, soil health, and water conservation techniques. Through these sessions, farmers’ skills are improved, leading to increased crop yields and promoting sustainable farming methods that benefit both the environment and the community.
