SUSTAINABLE AGRICULTURE KITS
Hundreds of millions of people make their livelihoods from hillside and terraced farming. SAK Global is a research-based organization that aims to distribute innovative, practical, and low-cost farming concepts and tools to improve subsistence farming. They are finding that sustainable agriculture kits (SAKs) can improve agricultural productivity, reduce female drudgery, and contribute to environmental sustainability. Based on the perspectives of local Nepali farmers, this video project shows the benefits of SAKs in the hilly and mountainous regions of Nepal. Below you can watch the SAK Nepal trailer and full film, or you can visit the SAK Global youtube channel to watch one of 13 shorter videos (English or Nepali) about individual SAK concepts and tools! With support from SAK Global and Local Initiatives for Biodiversity Research and Development (LI-BIRD), I spent over a month filming in the Kaski and Dhading districts of central Nepal.
