Abstract

This paper describes the process used in the development of two villages in the remote Humla region of Nepal. The process includes both reducing the deforestation and improving the living standard and health of the local people. Specifically, it implements pit latrines, smokeless stoves and electric lighting. The lighting is powered by either pico hydro systems or by solar photovoltaic systems.
