Review of Current and Planned Adaptation Action in Nepal
This report provides a snapshot of Nepal’s current and planned efforts to support adaptation to climate change.
It describes how Nepal is addressing its vulnerability to climate change by advancing adaptation action at the local, sub-national and national levels. Of particular concern for the country is the need to address adaptation requirements in sectors such as agriculture, water resources, energy, health and urban planning. The Government of Nepal’s leadership in adaptation planning, despite decades-long political instability and poor performance of the economy, has been recognized as a good example of a country-driven and country-owned initiative. The ongoing Local Adaptation Plans for Action process has demonstrated the potential of bottom-up, inclusive and decentralized adaptation planning. Drawing upon available literature, this report is one in a series prepared by IISD to support the work of the Collaborative Adaptation Research Initiative in Africa and Asia (CARIAA).
