Source(s):  International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD)

This document presents the results of a case study carried out in China, Nepal, and Pakistan which reviews the use of trees for agricultural diversification by communities in response to climate-related stresses as part of a larger project documenting local adaptation strategies to climate-induced water stress and hazards in the Hindu Kush Himalayan region. The document is comprised of six main sections: (i) section one introduces the environmental background of the region, the policies regarding sustainable agroforestry currently in place, and the objectives of the study; (ii) section two explains the methodology of the study; (iii) section three presents the three locations considered in the study, Baoshan Municipality in China, Upper and Lower Mustang in Nepal, and North West Frontier Province and Azad Jammu and Kashmir in Pakistan; (iv) section four outlines the impacts of climate change on production and livelihoods in these three locations and the responses taken at each location; (v) section five discusses the results and distills the information into key findings; and (vi) section six concludes the document with seven key recommendations.
