Biochar is a carbon-rich form of charcoal that can act as a wood substitute for a source of household energy. GlobalResolve has helped create a biochar business. The project seeks to expand to additional communities and create an income generation plan for its sale. In addition, farmers rely on a labor-intensive process of hauling water from rivers. The solar irrigation project aims to build and expand this system, which will double the productivity and income of the farmers by allowing them to grow multiple crops while adding nutrition to household diets. Both projects combined will impact approximately 1,500 community members in Nepal.
