The Commercial Agriculture and Resilient Livelihoods Enhancement Programme (CARLEP) aims to facilitate the transformation of a subsistence-based rural agricultural economy into a sustainable value chain and market driven productive sector by promoting climate smart approaches in agriculture and strengthening capacities of communities and local institutions.

The Programme shall adopt two-pronged approaches - Value chain or commercialization approach in Gewogs with high production and marketing potentials and targeted intervention approach in vulnerable Gewogs to poverty and climate change impacts. The Programme area includes selected Gewogs in six eastern Dzongkhags (Lhuentse, Mongar, Pemagatshel, Samdrup Jongkhar, Trashi Yangtse and Trashigang). The programme will benefit 28000 smallholder HHs of which 5000 HH will directly benefit from vegetable and dairy value chains. read more
