Urban Ecosystem Health in Kathmandu (Nepal) - Phase III

The two earlier phases of this project (003320 and 101277) led to the creation or strengthening of 18 local stakeholder groups and resulted in a new Animal Slaughtering and Meat Inspection Act, modification of the Nepal Food Act, modification of the Garbage Disposal Act, revisions to the Kathmandu Valley Housing Plan and revisions to the Nepal Drinking Water and Sewerage Plan.

The final phase of support will allow the National Zoonoses and Food Hygiene Centre (NZFHRC) to strengthen the capacity of local stakeholder organizations and city authorities to sustain and improve community health, to implement a funding diversification strategy, and to document the outcomes and lessons learned for wide dissemination.
