  3. 3. Climate Change Scenario (adopted from NDR,2009) ( d df NDR 2009) • Nepal is the most vulnerable country to climate‐related  disasters due to increase in intensity and frequency of  disasters due to increase in intensity and frequency of weather hazards(abrupt climate change)‐IPCC, 2007; • Warming trends(1971‐94)‐ranging from 0.06 to 0.12 deg  cel; The hottest 5% of days and nights (1970‐1999); • GCM projection: increase in temp over Nepal of 0.5‐2 deg  cel by 2030 and rising to 3 0‐6 3 deg by 2090; by 2030 and rising to 3.0‐6.3 deg by 2090;  • The hottest days to be increased up to 55% by 2060s and  70% by 2090s; • The hottest nights to be increased up to 77% by 2060s and  93% by 2090s; • Precipitation changes in the monsoon: ‐14 to +40% by  h h b 2030s and increasing ‐52 to 135% by 2090s;
  4. 4. Climate Change  • IPCC defined "climate change" as: "a change of climate which is  attributed directly or indirectly to human activity that alters the  composition of the global atmosphere and which is in addition to  natural climate variability observed over comparable time periods".  k|ToIf jf ck|ToIf ?kn] dfgljo lqmofsnfksf] sf/0fn] k[YjLsf jfo'd08nsf kYjLsf] jfod08nsf tTjx?df cfPsf] kl/jt{gn] jiff}{ b]lv cfPsf kl/jtgn jiff blv /lxcfPsf] k|fs[lts xfjfkfgLdf ePsf] kl/jt{gnfO{ g} Cli t Change elgG5 . Climate Ch • IPCC refers to any significant change in climatic elements (temp,  pptn or wind) long term for an extended period( decades or longer) pptn or wind) long‐term for an extended period( decades or longer) • Climate change refers to any significant change in measures of  climate (such as temperature, precipitation, or wind) lasting for an  extended period (decades or longer). extended period (decades or longer)

  7. 7. Climate Change leads weathers • Climate Variability: Unequal distribution of normal weather  system(amount, timing and intensity) with time and space • The intensity and frequency of rainfall varies with Space and Time The intensity and frequency of rainfall varies with Space and Time For example: annual ppt in Mahabharat region(2500‐3000mm) and  cloudburst causes heavy rain suddenly like 500mm/day‐such cloudbursts‐ may occur at intervals of about 8‐10 years(NDR,2009) • Extreme Rainfall Events • More heat waves More heat waves • Increased drought • Increased frequency of high ppt in particular regions • Increases in the number & intensity of strong cyclone • Higher temp and melting glaciers

  15. 15. Why are existing adopted measures unable  to withstand CDs?  ih d ? • the design is made without adequate consideration of climate change. The  measures are taken as mal‐adaptation in DRR measures are taken as mal adaptation in DRR • It is not considered future risk to CC . • the best practices of DRR are considered adaptive measures to reduce  p , p g y climatic impacts. However, due to rapid change in climatic variability and  its uncertainty, the natural and human systems are facing challenges to  adapt climatic disasters.  Hence, it requires re‐shaping, re‐designing of development practices  Hence it requires re shaping re designing of development practices including social and economic practices to respond effectively to newly  environmental changes especially climatic extremes.  • For this, HFA guideline and sustainable development strategy is to some  extent appropriate to address  CC by incorporating  scientific program for  i dd b i i i ifi f CC monitoring.
