Clean Water and Reusable Energy in Nepal

Summary

This Nepal project is using solar energy to help improve remote rural communities' resilience, with a focus on improving health, flood-safety and the livelihoods of 2,750 vulnerable people in two isolated communities in Surkhet District. Renewable energy is a way for communities to go off the grid whilst becoming more independent and affordable at the same time. This isn't easy as not all communities have the funding and knowledge to implement renewable energy which is where we step in...

Challenge

The need for improved resilience towards disasters became clear after areas in Nepal were devastated by floods in 2014. Many people are still without homes, electricity and running water, which directly affects most aspects of their lives, especially healthcare. Without funding and resources, these communities have been unable to rebuild their homes and develop their communities, however, if they had access to reusable energy and sustainable water supplies their lives would be very different

Solution

Working with our partner, we are hoping to change this situation for more than 2,750 people in two communities in Surkhet. Solar Energy for Community Resilience in Nepal is a highly innovative project that uses solar energy to build community resilience - strengthening health and small enterprise development - and reducing communities' vulnerability to climate change impacts as well as providing them with the opportunity to become independent and develop sustainably.

Long-Term Impact

In the long run, we hope to provide communities with sustainable water supplies and reusable energy sources so that they can have electricity and water all year round without relying on the larger cities and communities. This will allow communities to grow and develop whilst having a minimal impact on the environment and their surroundings. This will benefit healthcare, education and empower community members through job creation and providing skills they wouldn't have otherwise had access to.
