Local Initiatives for Biodiversity, Research and Development (LI-BIRD)
LI-BIRD is a non-profit making, non-governmental organization committed to capitalize on local initiatives for a sustainable management of renewable natural resources and to improve the livelihoods of the people of Nepal.

Action Pledge

LI-BIRD provided information on its work and on its activities relevant to the Nairobi work programme.
The action pledge highlights three relevant activities:

NGO group in Nepal
The aim of this activity is to raise awareness amongst key development NGOs on climate change and development issues by establishing a group of such NGOs who meet regularly and carry out joint activities. LI-BIRD will assist the NGO forum/group in its activities.

Climate Change Information Resource Centres
The aim of this activity is to increase access to materials on climate change for use by civil society actors and students thereby enhancing learning and sharing among civil society organizations on climate change issues.

Building resilience of communities to the adverse impacts of climate change
The aim of this activity is to reduce vulnerability of poor and marginal communities to the negative impacts of climate change on agriculture. LI-BIRD aims to implement and strengthen climate change adaptive measures and strategies at community level through action research and development intervention, to increase awareness on impact of climate change at different levels and to influence government programmes and policies supportive of actions towards climate change adaptation.
