The ‘Support to Rural Livelihoods and Climate Change Adaptation in the Himalayas (Himalica)’ Project has been implemented by ICIMOD in collaboration with partner organizations across the Himalayas (Bangladesh, Bhutan, Myanmar, Nepal and Pakistan) and funded by the European Union (EU). Himalica is a demand-driven project and focuses on developing national and regional capabilities to adapt policies impacting on mountain rural livelihoods, conducting collaborative action research in relation to mountain livelihoods and ecosystems, and piloting activities in a collaborative and integrated manner to strengthen the resilience of mountain men and women. In Taplejung, Nepal, the pilot as well as action research activities have been implemented to address some of the issues identified by Kangchenjunga Landscape Conservation and Development Project (KLCDI) in large cardamom-alder agroforestry system. It uses ‘climate-resilient value chain development approach’ as an entry point to build the resilience of farming systems for transformative change. The approach is guided by a ‘social-ecological system’ perspective that acknowledges the symbiotic ‘nature-people’ relationship in the mountains.
