Dipendra Kandel Initiative
  • Technocratic Diplomacy

    The globalized reality we live in requires us to engage in active learning and adapting to change. Therefore, all our work is conducted with an international mindset and a technocratic approach. 

    In the long run, we wish to increase international cooperation and technocratic practices across the public and private sector.

Agricultural Policy

As one of the main pillars of the primary sector, agriculture represents the main source of revenues for many families in the developing countries. In this sense, it has been well proved how agriculture contributes greatly to poverty reduction.


Having a good agricultural policy is critical for meeting increasing demand for safe and nutritious food in a sustainable way.


Within this context, the Dipendra Kandel Initiative undertakes agricultural research as to draft policy recommendations aimed at increasing productivity growth, enhancing environmental performance and adaptation to climate change, and improving resilience of farm households to market shocks brought on by weather and other unforeseen circumstances.


Agricultural research focuses on: Soil, sowing, manuring, irrigation, weeding, harvesting, storage, product distribution, natural capital (land and water), physical capital (livestock, farm equipment, roads, and local infrastructure), human capital (education, labour, health, and nutrition), social capital, protecting assets, technical innovations, market organisational structures…Soil, sowing, manuring, irrigation, weeding, harvesting, storage, product distribution, natural capital (land and water), physical capital (livestock, farm equipment, roads, and local infrastructure), human capital (education, labour, health, and nutrition), social capital, protecting assets, technical innovations, market organisational structures…
