The UN Sustainable Development Goals are a collection of 17 interlinked global goals designed to be achieved by 2030. The Nepal reforestation project supports 9 of the UN goals, helping to resolve many of the challenges and to achieve a better, more sustainable future for all.
Our Partner Eden Reforestation manages this site.
The Jodhipur planting site comprises of 1480 hectares of tropical forest, situated along the Babai River in west Nepal's Bardiya District.
The Babai River is an important wildlife corridor connecting the forest-dominated Bardiya National Park to the lowland plains of the Terai ecological zone. The national park is home to spectacular wildlife, including wild elephants, greater one-horned rhinoceros and Bengal tigers.
Nepal is one of the least developed countries in the world with many communities depending on the natural environment for food, shelter, and income.Today less than 30% of Nepal’s forests remain and the consequences of this environmental degradation are devastating for local populations and wildlife. This reforestation project, will help communities through the dignity of employment, empowering them to sustainably grow their own food and restore their local environment, enabling local villagers to enjoy the results of their labour. The local leadership team is comprised entirely of women and over half of the work force are also women.
