Currently I am working as a District project Coordinator in UNDP supported Livelihood Recovery for Peace (LRP) project since Nov 2009. Prior to this I was working as Field Monitor in UNDP field office where my major responsibility was to monitor field level activities being initiated by UNDP, Nepal. I have also work as Team Leader for Local Development Fund of District Development committee. My major responsibility as a Team Leader was to support in establish good governence, butom-up planning of Village Development Committee and alliviate poverty through involving local people in income generation activities. Project(Livelihood Recovery for Peace) with which I am currently working has implemented in August 2009 in three central tarai districts Mahotari, Sarlahi and Rautahat initially for the period of five years. Political conflict, armed conflict, exclusion, gender based violence, unemployment and under employment has hindered development. The 2.1 million people who live in these districts have a mixed ethnic makeup and almost 30% people are land less. The project is one of the initiatives through which UNDP Nepal is promoting local peace through livelihood support as an entry point to directly support the communities to have better livelihood outcomes.
The overall objective of this integrated, area-focused project is to contribute to local peace building and restoring the foundations for sustainable livelihoods. The focus is on improving household/community livelihoods and local economic recovery, enhancing social cohesion, strengthening village and district level local governmenant and non-government institutions for supporting livelihoods initiatives, and empowering women.
The proposed projects areas in Sarlahi district possess a situation where poorest and marginalized as well as disadvantageous community called VEED live their lives in conflict and having hand to mouth problem . Sarlahi district is southern low lying flat belt bordering India, and highly susceptible to floods during the monsoon, which lasts from June to September every year. The targeted beneficiaries are most vulnerable in terms of impact of disasters on human population, current conflict and lack of employment opportunity. Due to high population density and frequent occurrence of floods poor people have very low coping capacity because of limited options.
This integrated project is being implementing in the district by multiple partners of government and non government organizations.
