Nepal's Province 2 consists of eight main terai districts. This province, formerly known as the grain basket, lags behind in terms of nutrition security and HDI. Surprisingly, this province is also a food insecure province, as stated by the Province Secretary for Land Management, Agriculture, and Cooperatives. The establishment of Agriculture Knowledge Centers and Livestock Experts Centers as provincial ministry wings has definitely encouraged the provincial ministry; nevertheless, cooperation between the local and central governments is critical for meeting the goals. Only 6000 goats have been brought to the Kathmandu valley out of a total of around 60,000 for the upcoming Dashain.

Because of the constraints of road transportation, this region is by definition an organic zone. According to "The Livestock Traders Service Association," Province 6 provided around 7000 goats to the Kathmandu Valley in the upcoming Dashain.
