COYON - Volunteering - Agriculture & Environment

Agriculture dominated the economy of Nepal as it is the basic income generator for more than 85 percent of Nepali who are living in the villages of rural as well as urban areas. Agriculture is in the highest priority of every development plans because economic growth was dependent on both increasing the productivity of existing crops and diversifying the agricultural base for use as industrial inputs. Irrigation, the use of fertilizers and insecticides, the introduction of new implements and new seeds of high-yield varieties are the key factors to increase agricultural production. The lack of distribution of these inputs, agricultural knowledge and equipments as well as problems in obtaining supplies, are the main hindrance of agricultural development in Nepal.

Deforestation and settlement were occurring in the various parts of country thus environmental degradation & ecological imbalance also prevented progress though conservation of forests is being carried out by local community known as Forest Development Committee.

Agricultural Technician
To improve the agricultural production in Nepal, we would like to invite, Junior Technical Assistants (JTA) in agriculture and other technicians. The volunteers will work horticulture and soil conservation as well as train the farmers to preparation the farm to plant seeds, taking care of their farm and other agricultural issues increase their skills and abilities to produce more agricultural product.

An agriculture Volunteer will have to works closely with a group of farmers who are motivated to raise their standard of living by improving food production for their families. The Volunteer may introduce new production techniques through constructing demonstration plots, distributing improved vegetable seeds, and establishing nurseries.

Animal Farming Specialist (eg Veterinary Doctor)
As a part of agriculture animal farming is more in demand these days. We eat animal products at an incredible rate and most of people in living in villages of Nepal are directly depended on animal in their day to day life, no matter whether it is for wool, dairy products, meat, or dunks for their paddy field. Nowadays, meat and dairy products are constantly in the news, everyone wonders whether or not these products are safe for us, and if we are at risk of becoming seriously ill.

Prospective volunteer can help farmers to increase the hygiene, quality as well as quantity on these animal products such as teaching them how to do regular treatment and give vaccine to their animal, how to put them in the clean environment and so on.

Environment Expert
It is expected that ten trees are cut down while one tree planted in the world today. Due to the rapid deforestation, global warming, decreased biodiversity, soil erosion, and desertification are only some of the problems and the whole world is suffering. As a developing country, Nepal is also canít be an exception. The green forest of Nepal was considered as a treasure of income sources and slowly itís being swept up.

The deforestation in Nepal is leading to shortages of animal fodder and firewood that affects agricultural based economy of the country. In response to this concern, our prospective forestry or environment volunteers can work with the community forest development committee and promote the equitable and proper management of scarce forest resources. They can also teach and lead the villagers to various environmental awareness programme, such as use of smokeless stoves, using solar energy as a fuel and so on.
