Right to Food Project


Nepal, South Asia  Show on interactive map

Active from:

Jul 2013 to Jun 2019

Implementing organisation(s):

CARE Nepal



Contact persons:



By supporting core strategic partners to implement their strategic plans, the project contributes to mobilizing poor, marginalized women and men farmers (including landless farmers) to participate in decision-making and claim their rights. As an objective in itself, CARE will support the civil society organisations to become more representative, accountable and effective. As key change agents, the civil society organisations will be able to demonstrate new ways of addressing food insecurity and bring about the required policy responses through engagement with the government at all levels which will contribute to the realization of the right to adequate food.

Objectives of the intervention:

The impact goal of the project is: Representative civil society organisations have contributed to the realization of the ‘right to food’ to the benefit of the impact groups

1. Civil society organisations representing the impact group have mobilized and empowered poor, vulnerable and marginalized women farmers to claim their rights and increase their resilience to climate change
2. Civil society organisations representing impact group have increased their own representativeness, inclusiveness and governance and are capable of influencing policy formulation and implementation
3. The duty-bearers demonstrate capacity and commitment to progressively realize the right to food and build resilience of food insecure citizens to climate change

Why was OM chosen?

Through this project, we are working directly with Nepali CSOs to improve their capacity so that they can effectively work for and with their impact groups (women, marginal and landless farmers, tenants and small holders). We are using OM to track the changes in behaviour of our partners and stakeholders (actors). This tool is also used in planning and designing support strategies.

How was OM used?
