Project Area


The Hariyo Ban Program (HBP) is a five-year initiative of the USAID/WWF that seeks to reduce the adverse impacts of climate change and threats to biodiversity in Nepal. The program works in partnership with a consortium of NGOs: World Wildlife Fund (WWF) (lead), Cooperative for Assistance and Relief Everywhere (CARE), National Trust for Nature Conservation (NTNC), and the Federation of Community Forestry Users in Nepal (FECOFUN). The Government of Nepal (GoN) is a key partner and a beneficiary of Hariyo Ban, along with the local communities.

In February 2014, SW Nepal team had prepared guidelines for HBP that included various activities of project cycle, roles and responsibilities of stakeholders and engineering details (design, specification, etc.) for 12 different infrastructure types.

SW Nepal reviewed the guideline after collecting the feedback from different consortium partners and stakeholders two years after HBP followed the guideline in different construction projects. The assignment activities included consultation meetings with consortium partners and stakeholders, review of the guideline based on comments provided to make it more applicable at different level/stages of program implementation.
