CRS Nepal In Collaboration With Agriculture And Forestry University (Afu), Nepal

The Government of Nepal (GoN), through its Agriculture Development Strategy (ADS), has identified 15 potential value chains and prioritized five: dairy, lentil, maize, tea and vegetables. CRS Nepal conducted a comprehensive value chain study in Palpa and Dang districts in Province 5. Based on consultations with MoLMAC, Agriculture Development Directorate, Agriculture Knowledge Centers, Grain Legume Research Program (Nepal Agriculture Research Council) and private sector actors, such as processors, millers, commodity associations in Province 5, CRS Nepal has identified lentils as one of the commodities with the most potential for inclusive value chain strengthening opportunities.
