Based on community questionnaires and supported by NASA EOS
Nepal is an agricultural country where a major percentage of the population still rely on agriculture for livelihood. Agriculture as an occupation is very challenging because of the topography, climate, and issues with wildlife, lack of inadequate irrigation and water supply, and shortage of labors and resources. In addition different natural calamities like flood, landslide, drought, erratic rainfall, etc.making it even more difficult to sustain.The main objective of this study is to assess the challenges of practicing agriculture in mid-hills of Eastern Mountainous Region using NASA EOSDIS (Earth Observing System Data and Information System) and community questionnaires.
