The Rural Livelihoods and Climate Change Adaptation (Himalica) programme has been implementing a pilot project at Barshong Geog of Tsirang district in Bhutan focused on improving income of target households through promoting climate adaptive practices at each node of two specific value-chains; goats and vegetables.
