Analysis of policy and regulatory issues in agricultural technology in Nepal

Supportive policy and reregulation are important to create an enabling environment for innovation, transfer and adoption of agricultural technology. Realizing this, South Asia Watch on Trade, Economics and Environment (SAWTEE) with support from Feed the Future Project, Winrock International undertook a project aiming to identify the policy and regulatory issues impeding the development, transfer, adaptation and adoption of appropriate technology in agriculture in Nepal, especially among smallholders, with a focus on vegetables and aquaculture.
