WWF, Coca-Cola Foundation team up to protect Nepal’s water resources, livelihoods
Sep 8, 2017-
WWF and the Coca-Cola Foundation have joined hands to promote sustainable use of water, enhance livelihoods of local communities and conserve freshwater ecosystem in Nepal.
The two-year project starting August 2017 is based in Indrawati sub-basin in Nepal’s mid hills and Barandhavar corridor in Chitwan in the Terai Arc Landscape.
Under the Indrawati sub-basin, the project will be implemented in DhandKhola and Cha Khola catchments.
Housing vital ecosystems of forests and freshwater, the two catchments are affected by growing urbanisation, land use and land cover change and reduced water availability.
These problems have been further exacerbated by climate change making the entire catchments vulnerable.
