Traditional Climate Change Adaptation Practices by farmers in Nepal

GWP Nepal documented climate change adaptation practices developed and being practiced by Nepalese farmers since last several years. The report comprises number of case studies from several places such as Khokana VDC of Lalitpur district, Arjundhara VDC of Jhapa district, Niglihawa, Hathausa, Barkalpur and Dhankauli VDC of Kapilvastu district, Mahadevsthan VDC of Dhading district, Chayanam VDC of Okhaldhunga district and Rosera VDC of Baitadi district. It has documented about 34 adaptation activities on the basis of field study and interaction with the farmers. The adaptation activities were found to differ from place to place although some of the adaptation activities such as use of earthen canal, water harvesting concrete ponds were found to be replicated. Those practices could be repeated by other farmers too for adaptation to the climate change.
