Overordnede mål :
The overall objective of the intervention is to achieve improved standard of living of climate vulnerable rural communities in South Asia by integration of local sustainable solutions that contribute to climate change mitigation, adaptation and resilience building.
Umiddelbare mål :
Objective 1: At the end of the project rural communities in Nepal, Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India have improved their lives through the establishment of Eco-Village Development (EVD) model villages. Objective 2: At the end of the project local communities and stakeholders have additional market access and business opportunity to appropriate solutions contributing to improved livelihood, climate change mitigation and adaptation. Objective 3: EVD has been disseminated to and recognized by a broader audience reaching from local to international level.

With this intervention, we will roll out a concept for village-based, local, low-carbon development in four South Asian countries: the Eco-Village Development (EVD) concept. It is a prosperous and proven development concept that the partners have the competence to use, following five years of cooperation, and much longer individual experiences. With this wider implementation of the concept in new areas and on new levels, we will foster development in poor, rural areas. To maximise results in the intervention, we will combine local activities with capacity building to involve more actors (MFIs, SHGs, corporate sector, CSOs), and with advocacy to increase political support, also internationally. The target groups are poor, marginal, and climate vulnerable people in villages in Bangladesh, India, Nepal, and Sri Lanka. They will receive training, necessary information and support to improve their living standards and livelihood through introduction of low greenhouse gas solutions.
