Nearly all NGOs in Nepal will admit that poverty reduction is at the heart of their operations. LI-BIRD is no exception.
LI-BIRD, an abbreviation for Local Initiatives for Biodiversity, Research, and Development, is a registered not-for-profit organization that focuses on making life much easier for smallholder farmers through its commitment to capitalizing on institutions for sustainable management of natural resources and local resources.
Since its establishment in the mid-90s, 1995 to be precise, LI-BIRD has remained committed to continuing working in the research and agricultural development to improve the livelihoods of smallholder farmers through innovative approaches to biodiversity and natural resources.
The Local Initiatives for Biodiversity, Research, and Development (LI-BIRD), in partnership with communities, stakeholders, and other NGOs, are working towards poverty alleviation by improving access to health and services, strengthening resilient livelihood systems, and ensuring food, nutrition, and income security of smallholder farmers, especially women and youths.
