Organization Summary

Sahaj, also known as the Nepal Agricultural Market Development Programme (NAMDP), aims to facilitate increased engagement of smallholder farmers, especially women-led production units and people from disadvantaged backgrounds, in commercial agriculture. The project does this by making markets more accessible to smallholders, which allows them to improve their competitiveness and income from farming. It adopts an ‘Inclusive Markets’ approach, commonly referred to as the Making Markets Work for the Poor (M4P) or Market Systems Development (MSD) approach. Sahaj partners with different market actors and enables them to take the lead in co-designing innovative business models and implementing activities that increase farm-productivity and boost the marketing potential of the crops or livestock supplied by the poor farmers. Sahaj is a joint initiative of the Government of Nepal and the Government of Switzerland. It is mandated by the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC) and is designed as a 12-year programme with three consecutive phases. The first phase of the programme started from March 2016 and will continue until December 2019. Sahaj is jointly implemented by Swisscontact as the lead agency, and the Center for Environmental and Agricultural Policy Research, Extension and Development (CEAPRED).
