    Kings College in collaboration with ISAP, Krishak Ra Prabidhi, DV Excellus, Gandaki Urja, EcoHImal and Baliyo Nepal had organized a virtual seminar on the topic “AGRICULTURE NUTRITION PATHWAY: INCOME GENERATION TO IMPROVING HEALTH” on Monday, 7th September, for its second session of Agri Talk, which is a bimonthly event initiated with an objective of promoting good practices in agriculture and finding possible solutions to existing problems in the sector.

    Agriculture is possibly the most talked about and yet neglected sector in Nepal. Being “the most talked about” and “neglected” don’t go together and it shouldn’t. For that to happen we have to upgrade our agriculture practices. In this session of Agri Talks, Dr. Atul Upadhyay, CEO, Baliyo Nepal shed light on agriculture and market infrastructure, nutrition and health, dietary diversity, fortified foods, entrepreneurship, access to microcredit and cooperatives and women empowerment. He also gave some insight on the impact of COVID-19 on income generating activities at household level in Nepal. The presenter also discussed about the urgency of initiatives to increase youth participation in agriculture, lack of knowledge transfer and good governance. He also shared about the importance of ‘Reaching the Unreached’ through ‘AAA’ foods which stands for Affordable, Available and Accessible. This can be approached through ‘PPP’ i.e Public Private Partnership. Baliyo Nepal has also started an interesting “Baliyo Nepal and Egg Movement Initiative” to popularize egg consumption.

    The first event of Agri Talks was conducted at Kings College but due to the ongoing pandemic, we had chosen virtual medium for this session. We will continue our efforts in spreading awareness, changing perception and bringing positive changes in the sector in the best of our capabilities.

    On behalf of all the organizers, we would like to thank all the participants without whose support we would not have been able to conduct this event. Hoping to see you in future events as well.
