This initiative involves 15 renowned institutions from 11 countries, with UHF Nauni being the sole university representing India in the project.

Prof Chandel has also been instrumental in formulating a comprehensive natural farming curriculum for both agriculture graduates and school students at the national level. Furthermore, the university is actively collaborating with NABARD and the Agriculture Department of Himachal to provide handholding support to various Natural Farming Farmer Producer Companies established in the state. Prof Chandel’s multifaceted contributions especially in natural farming have significantly enhanced the university’s stature not only nationally but also on the global stage.
