Farmers of the Future
Extreme events like floods and droughts are taking a heavy toll on Nepal's agriculture and food security. 'Farmers of the Future’ documents a pilot initiative that is promoting climate smart agriculture in the plains and mid-hills of Nepal. It captures technologies like solar pumping based irrigation that is helping a farmers’ collective to get reliable water supply every day at 1/6th the cost of diesel pumps. It highlights how solar pumps are irrigating fields which lay fallow until now, and are yielding a variety of crops and vegetables round the year.
