The project CP 23, “Resource Management for Sustainable Livelihood” was a three year project, starting from April 2005 and ending in September 2008 with a no cost extension of six months from April 2008. It aimed at contributing to enhanced livelihood opportunities and reduced vulnerability for poor rural people in upper catchments, through understanding of legal, policy and institutional provisions for resource management in Nepal and India, resource assessment and livelihood analysis in the studied area, exploring expanded mandates for the existing resource users’ groups and possibility for scaling up their activities. To fulfill the objectives, researchers advanced a range of activities such as household survey, PRA exercises, formal and informal meetings, GIS, establishment of rain gauge stations, data interpretation and analysis, etc. The project conducted different case studies to support the different research reports.
