The Knowledge-based Integrated Sustainable Agriculture in Nepal (KISAN) II Project is a USAID funded five-year second phase of the USAID Feed the Future (FTF) initiative in Nepal. KISAN II aims to increase resilience, inclusiveness, and sustainability of income growth in the FTF zone of influence. The project is implemented by Winrock International in collaboration with five other Nepali and US organizations: DEPROSC-Nepal, CEAPRED, Digital Green, Siddhartha Inc., and Overseas Strategic Consulting (OSC).
KISAN II’s approach begins with the identification of constraints within key market systems and then addressing those constraints through project partners and initiatives. At the core of KISAN II private sector-led facilitative approach is promoting business case for buyers, intermediaries, and service providers to improve their business outcomes through more substantial engagement with producers and other value chain actors. KISAN engages partners across components, holistically supporting market system development by addressing issues related to marketing and business capacity (Component 2), farm-level productivity (Component 1), the enabling environment (Component 3), support for resiliency and integration of poor, marginalized populations (Component 4), and adaptive management (Component 5) to ensure maximum impact.
