Even the himalayas have stopped smiling: climate change, poverty and adaptation in Nepal


This report presents grim picture of climate impact on farmers in Nepal. It asserts that the changing weather patterns has dramatically affected crop production and families who were growing food enough for six months were able to produce food enough for only a month last year, and gives short- and long-term recommendations for adaptation, including the institutionalisation of disaster risk reduction (DRR) approaches.

This report brings together existing literature on climate change in Nepal with interviews and discussions with people in 14 communities in seven districts in three ecological zones in the Hills and Terai regions as well as interviews with government officials, experts and climate scientists.
