Mugu District lies in the mountainous Karnali Zone, one of the remotest, poorest and most neglected zones in Nepal. For the last 30 years the government and some major international agencies have addressed the problem of food security in Mugu solely by distributing food. This has encouraged dependency and means that local people have little confidence in their own abilities to solve problems.

This short case study explains how one Tearfund partner is working to change this, using a participatory strategy that strengthens the capacity of communities to develop their own solutions to problems, appropriate to their context and available resources.
