About Project

The Essential Oil Crops project sought to introduce innovative and climate resilient sources of income for community forest user groups and smallholder farmers in VDCs across the Kailali and Kanchanpur Districts in the West of Nepal. DWO provided technical and management assistance in establishment and maintenance of essential oil producing plant farming and water distillation enterprises. Assistance was given along all steps of the value chain from improving quality of the essential oils produced, to strengthening product branding, to networking between producers and the market. They were able to bring old distillation units back into operation and introduce low fuel consumption distillation units to increase efficiency. Improving the entrepreneurs’ technical understanding of essential oil crops was key in increasing the income of farmers under changing climate conditions. Strong community buy-in and networking within the value chain made each enterprise more sustainable and generated long term buy-in from stakeholders.
