Project summary:

Food heritage, foraging and associated cultural practices are intrinsically connected to the environment.  Changes in weather patterns including increased drought, heavy rain, and flooding as a result of climate change is severely impacting availability of resources vital to the continuation of this practice.

To protect this heritage the project will document and record the indigenous food heritage and practices of communities across several districts in the Gandaki province of Nepal. Women are the main carriers of this heritage and will have a leading role in identifying recipes and documenting activities.
