South Asia Co-operative Environment Programme (SACEP) is an inter-governmental organization, established in 1982 by the governments of South Asia to promote and support protection, management and enhancement of the environment in the region. SACEP member countries are Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan , India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan and Sri Lanka.
SACEP is a member of the following work packages:
Mapping existing policies and government programmes in each country that relate to nitrogen and its impacts. Identifying key individuals and discovering more about the policy process
Investigating the consequences of reducing nitrogen pollution and how this will impact society, human well-being and the economy in the future. How choices made in other parts of the world affect South Asian decisions on nitrogen and vice versa is also explored
Surveys will investigate how farmers use nitrogen to better understand how they make decisions on nitrogen use with both crops and livestock. This will help make sure solutions to reduce pollution are socially and culturally acceptable
