One District One Product (ODOP)
The concept of ODOP is entirely incorporated with the principles of “One Village One Product” (OVOP) concept which originated in Oita Prefecture of Japan in 1979. At present, this program has been adopted by different countries all over Asia, Africa and Latin America as a rural community development program. Nepal is one of the countries doing so, having adopted OVOP program since 2006. In Nepal, OVOP is a Public Private Partnership based program in which Federation of Nepalese Chambers of Commerce and Industry (FNCCI) is playing a very important role from the private sector in partnership with Ministry of Agriculture and Cooperatives (MoAC).
