Proceedings of the regional workshop on ‘exploring opportunities for transboundary collaboration on large cardamom value chain in the Kangchenjunga Landscape’, 22–23 May 2019, Phungling, Taplejung, Nepal

The Kanchenjunga Landscape (KL) is a transboundary complex that spreads across Nepal, Bhutan and India in the Hindu Kush Himalaya (HKH). The landscape is home to an array of mountain niche products, among which large cardamom (Amomum subulatum) is most significant. Nepal is the world’s largest producer of this particular species of large cardamom, with a total production of 6439 metric tonnes, followed by Darjeeling and Sikkim, India (4300 metric tonnes) and Bhutan (2091 metric tonnes). The increasing demand for large cardamom in the local and global market in the recent past strongly motivated farmers to bring more land under large cardamom cultivation.
