Eco-Village Development through Integration of Renewable Energy Solutions and Climate Friendly Activities for Enhancing Livelihood of Rural Communities in Bethanchok Rural Municipality, Kavre District
The project tries to introduce concept of Eco-village in one of the village in Kavre district.

An eco-village can be defined as a traditional or intentional community with the goal of becoming more socially, culturally, economically, and ecologically sustainable. It is consciously designed through locally owned, participatory processes to regenerate and restore its social and natural environments. It involves community using participatory design process for identification planning and implementation of appropriate, and affordable, renewable energy/climate friendly technology for enhancing livelihood-practices and capacity building activities for climate change adaptation and mitigation in villages. This project specially emphasis on ecological and social dimension of the existing community during the implementation.

The bundle of EVD solutions includes mitigation technologies like small, household-sized biogas plants, smokeless stoves, solar-energy technology, improved water mills to generate electric power, stand-alone systems like Pico /micro-hydro power for rural electrification and solar based drying units. It also includes adaptation of technologies such as organic farming, plastic tunnel farming, roof-rain water harvesting and water-lifting technologies like hydraulic ram pumps as the hydraulic ram pump earlier supported by GEF in Kavre district has positive impacts to the rural livelihoods integrating with improved water management practices resulting to improved agricultural / livestock production and improvement in sanitation and health. Hydraulic ram pumps will also be promoted wherever feasible
