Project Summary

The project aims to increase the knowledge and understanding of the link between climate change and vulnerability to child labor and/or forced labor through locally led research. The project will build the capacity of 22 local governments to design and implement initiatives to mitigate the negative impact of climate change on the economic well-being of families and communities in order to protect against child labor and forced labor. The project will work to empower and amplify the voices of those who have been the most socially excluded (and therefore the most at risk of child and forced labor), so that their perspectives and needs are given greater priority in initiatives aimed at mitigating the impact of climate change on vulnerable populations in Nepal. 

RRN will provide technical support and capacity building to community partners and local governments for activities related to Outcome 2, such as local adaptation planning, climate smart agriculture, natural resource management, and livelihoods adaptation. 


The project follows the following approaches and tools to achieve its objectives:

  1. Participatory, inclusive Approaches
  2. Multi Level Approach
  3. Iterative “Learning by doing approach” capacity building approach & transition of ownership

Expected Results

  1. Output 1: Increased understanding of the link between climate change and vulnerability to child labor and/or forced labor 
  2. Output 2: Increased implementation of child-centered, gender-sensitive and socially inclusive climate adaptation initiatives. 
  3. Cross-Outcome Strategy:  Engaging and empowering vulnerable groups to increase resilience and participation
