This publication is the edited volume of the UK-South Asia Young Scientists and Practitioners Seminar on Climate Change and Disaster Impact Reduction at Kathmandu, Nepal on 05-06 June, 2008. This event focused on the link between climate change and disaster impact reduction. It was opened by a high level representation from the Government of Nepal, international development organisations and university leaders. Its purpose was achieved; to consider local and regional perspectives on the climate threat, share and stimulate ideas about how people are reducing climate associated risks, and further engage networks that can contribute towards a more sustainable future. Presentation contributions were made from more than ten countries. The seminar engaged with theoretical, methodological and policy aspects of the subject area based on original research and reviews. There was a genuine sense that presentations were made to a very high standard with a stimulating level of varied and context specific detail.
