Min of Forests and Soil Cons & UNDP Nepal (2013) - Kurilo Value Chain Study

This study is part of a series of comprehensive value chain analyses carried out by the Department of Forestry (Ministry of Forest and Soil Conservation) and UNDP Nepal as part of the Mountain EbA Programme in Nepal. The study focuses on Kurilo, which belongs to the Liliaceae family. It is a perennial shrub found in sub-tropical regions in Nepal. Its root tubers and tender shoots are widely used for food, medicinal and commercial purpose. The Government of Nepal through MoFSC and DPR listed Kurilo as one amongst the 30 prioritised species for cultivation.

Min of Forests and Soil Cons & UNDP Nepal (2013) - Chiraito Value Chain Study

This study provides a comprehensive value chain analysis of Chiraito, which is a perennial herb found in temperate regions of Nepal. Chiraito is one of the highest export revenue earning medicinal plants of Nepal. Apart from the collection from the wild, it is now also being cultivated in most of the eastern districts of Nepal.

Min of Forests and Soil Cons & UNDP Nepal (2013) - Allo Value Chain Study

This study is part of a series of comprehensive value chain analyses carried out by the Department of Forestry (Ministry of Forest and Soil Conservation) and UNDP Nepal as part of the Mountain EbA Programme in Nepal. The study focuses on Allo, which is a perennial shrub belonging to the Urticaceae family (Nettle). The stem bark of Allo contains fibres with unique strength, smoothness and silk like lustre. The fibre has been used to make clothes for generations.

SUSTAINABLE LAND MANAGEMENT AND BIODIVERSITY CONSERVATION FOR COMMUNITY-BASED ADAPTATION: A Comparative Study of the UNDP-GEF Community-Based Adaptation Portfolio in Samoa

Samoa is a Small Island Developing Country located in the Southwest Pacific. The climate is tropical with uniform temperatures
ranging between 24°C-32°C, and average precipitation of about 3,000mm. As other Pacific Island countries, Samoa during the
20th Century has experienced an increase in average temperatures—a mean increase of 0.59°C—and a decrease in precipitation
by 49.28mm. Climate change projections from the First National Communication (FNC 1999) and the United Nations Framework
