This product marketing platform has been created as part of the project “Building Resilience and Climate Adaptive Planning in Urban Centers of Nepal”. The project is an initiative to support urban centers to develop and implement urban resilience and climate adaptive planning in Nepalgunj Sub-Metropolitan City (NSMC) and Birendranagar Municipality of the Mid-Western Development Region of Nepal. The project has provided seed grants to help local people starting or expanding private businesses that are climate-adaptive and environment-friendly. The 24 green businesses established by the project are marketing their products through this platform.
